I like the guy a lot, but where was McCabe on that short-handed goal? Out of position, or did the Montreal forward sneak through the middle?

Nice to see Horton playing much better. It's only a matter of time.

He's talking about the consecutive attempts at a wraparound.

I like him too, but he left Vokoun out to dry on Saturday with St Louis' goal after the 2 on 1 with Vinny.

So you're saying Andy is not at fault there for simply putting his leg out? He couldn't have made a better effort ont he play, just like McCabe could have? You people defend these goalies as if they are incapable of mistake. When did they become so fragile?

It was 2 wrap arounds really, one on each side. He could have had it, but the d-man their could have challenged a bit behind the net.

I was looking for Cullimore to be there to protect on the wrap around (McCabe, perhaps, too). Anderson got the first attempt with his leg, IMO he can't really be expected to get back that quick on the other side after being bent over like that.

I was a little behind cause I had to run up to the store between periods, but right before they scored the 3rd goal, I was saying that Anderson is going to get beat up top. He was dropping way to early and staying down.

EDIT: Just watched the 2nd goal and again, Anderson went down too early.

Oh, I see. I wasn't blaming Anderson for the goal. I meant the goal was a gimme in the sense that McCabe's delayed coverage on the scorer (can't remember who it was) gave him all the time in the world to do whatever he wanted. Anderson didn't have much of a chance.

Yeah. That's what I was thinking. McCabe just stayed there for a while, as if he had forgotten that he was playing in a match.

He could have done more, it wasn't that quick, but it is an odd position for a goalie, as they tend to panic as to which way the puck is coming from.

I thought Skrastins was the only guy back on that one. He tried to block the original shot, then the puck jumped back to St. Louis.

Yes he can. If Vokoun is expected to cover freak bounces off the boards after a 2 on 1, you fault him for deflecting a rebound almost straight up but to Vinny in front of two defenders, and he's expected to react to Malone getting the puck deflected back to him and spinning around for a shot several feet away a split-second after the initial shot, Andy can be expected to stick his glove up after 2-3 seconds (forever in a hockey game).

Watch the replay again, though. McCabe was the man skating back and gave up on the play when St Louis took the shot. He had all the time in the world to help Tivo out with the rebound.

Edit: Just to note, when I'm replying to people about the unfair shake Vokoun's getting and say "you," I don't specifically mean the person I'm replying to. I think Panthers/Leafs fan actually defended Tivo and wanted to make sure there aren't any misunderstandings.

heh. you can say that again. i'm watching the crappy feed - couldn't find anyplace closeby in nyc. are there any hockey bars in the city?

i got in just before that 3rd goal but.. i don't know how folks can complain about the goaltending when their guy is able to do whatever he wants behind the and we've got only 1 D gaurding the front. i saw mclean on his man and saw mccabe trying desperately to cover both sides of the net. wtf? who/where was the other D? you can't ask your goalie to cover wraparound after wraparound. i mean, we did but you saw what happened.

I see what you mean. I was actually wondering where the other d-man was on that play.

Big period here, hopefully we can come back. I don't like either McCabe or Cullimore. Yes, both make plays here and there (cully breaking up the 3 on 1, McCabe vs. tampa and other times), but they're both very average skaters (well at least McCabe is when he's half-assing it). Sure they can make up for that and play well but Cullimore is horrible on the offensive end despite being good defensively, and McCabe is spotty defensively. Cully put a weak shot on net earlier when he had Frolik and someone else open high in the slot.

Ugh always the odd-man rushes that kill us.

We won't be pulling off any 2 goal comeback against this team.

Good, finally Anderson gets pulled for some shaky play. Vokoun wouldn't have let that last goal in. Dammit what are we doing. Boynton's such an idiot.

That can't be said about either of our goalies, which is why I'm against trading either of them unless we can an absolutely irresistible offer.

We're so set in goal but neither of them is perfect. It just seems so obvious to keep letting them push each other.

And what is it about Canadians not knowing which sport they're watching? Or is it that they can only remember one-word soccer chants?

OMG BOYNTON ARE YOU SERIOUS!?!!!!!!?!?!?!?

What an IDIOTIC play right there. That was one of the most dumbfounding plays I've ever seen in my life. Could it be anymore blantant? I can't wait until Boynton's contract expires in the summer. He's so slow and stupid.

The energy is there tonight, but we can't seem to get things together. To their credit, the Habs players are simply playing phenomenally; their speed and chemistry are truly exemplary.

Oh it's not Canadians, it's Habs fans and it's the most annoying thing in hockey.

Hate how dumb it makes them look, not the chant itself. It's great for soccer but just makes hockey fans look foolish.
