Good teams find a way to win.
Ottawa had a bad game, agreed. Despite this, they could've walked out with at least a point, but did not, because a goal was scored from the red line. There's plenty of blame to go around, but it starts with #40.

Yup.

Actually, to be fair Lalime did NOT really let in a goal from center. He let in a goal from 2 inches!

Er.. yeah. But that wouldn't have been the case had Turco not let in HIS really bad goal.

i am just curious could the Sens afford Sean Burke, if so, is Sean Burke an upgrade over Lalime at this stage of Burke's career?

First of all, that was NOT the red line. It was FAR closer to the Blue line (and I know why Mizral said Red line cough Cloutier cough).

Second, I wouldn't say it deflated Ottawa. Within a minute we had hit the cross bar, within 2 we had a few more GREAT scoring chances. The fifth goal (where Lalime also looked terrible) was a direct result of a gamble to keep the puck in (after yet another Ottawa chance). What it truly showed was that Ottawa was sleepwalking through most of the period. That 2 minute stretch was the best Hockey played all night.

Anyways, Ottawa will SINK or SWIM with Lalime. Despite his struggles (and he has struggled more with the timing of saves than anything else), their are no better solutions than Lalime. His career playoff GAA is 1.72 with a 0.930 sv%. His numbers are STILL around his career averages, even with the debacle tonight. He hasn't been as good as he is capable of being, but you can't panick.

Did you see how incredibly soft the goals he allowed were? It was ridiculous. He choked.....BIG TIME.

He has been letting in weak goals all season for that matter.

Other than the Zubov shot, which ones were soft?

The Mike Modano 100 mph power play goal? (where he was wide open?)
The Young/Arnott 2 on 1 where Young faked to the right and shot it in from 5 feet out?
The first goal through traffic and a screen in front?
The Turgeon goal where the entire Stars forward core was crashing the net?

Seemed like pretty typical NHL goals to me.

Every goal is Lalimes fault. It has been modus operandi for Sens fans for a while. I would also say that Lalime was CLEARLY not over the long goal when Young scored on the 2 on 1. I have NEVER seen Lalime try to play a shot like that.

Yeah, he was cheating. Young had a great lane to pass to Arnott, glanced at him, and Lalime totally bought it.

However, you can't really fault him ENTIRELY for that. I mean, it WAS a 2 on 1 and he had to choose a side quickly...

But, I will give you the capper one was "weak" as well...

I wouldn't say he was cheating, he just didn't want to go down, at all costs, which I can only imagine was his head telling him something stupid. It was a good chance, and may very well have been a goal with Lalime playing that shot how he normally does, but the way he played that was poor.

Before the season a lot of people thought that he was a serious contender for the World Cup. Not anymore. He's not worth the risk.

Maybe we're not even talking about the same goal here but the one I saw was: U-G-L-Y.

I never want to hear about Cloutier's gaff against Detroit in the playoffs ever again.

Damn, it looked like the Sens had the two points bagged. :mad:
There have been uglier goals to be sure. Dan McGillis' goal on Andre Trefilov from center or, my favorite, Ray Bourque from the top of the face off circle inside his own blueline on Kay Whitmore.

Huh? Was that Lalime's family? I don't think you heard too much of that from Sens fans.

I'd love to see the evidence.

The Sens obviously forgot the lesson from last year when Dallas overcame a 3-1 deficit in the 3rd to beat them.

and for the record-Lalime had it stopped but Pothier knocked it in to his own net.

Lol...

Looks like this season the Canucks stole Lalime, threw him in Cloutier's equipment and iced him, while unbeknownst to the Sens --- they actually have Cloutier in Lalime's equipment. Figured you wouldn't notice because they're both French Canadian

Seriously though, that goal was one heck of a stinker. What is wrong with that guy this year?

I watched that game in it's entirety, and the fact is, Lalime was fighting the puck all night long. He alone deserves the blame for that loss, not the team as a whole. Pierre Maguire said he "looked small in the net" and I agree, and when pro players pick up on that, LOOK OUT.
