EDIT: What team ended Roberto Luongo's shutout streak this season? (Although, it was Paul Stastny who scored that goal)
Yes but we had a team! I feel like this team has no spinal cord, nothing impressive down the line. Besides, the Avs own Luongo , Mason I am not sure if the Avs played him before or not so he is still relatively unknown.

Eh, don't worry. Its Altitude, I am sure they'll talk about Clark/Arny more for the rest of the game.
Hard to believe after last season Pascal Leclaire is the "back up". I don't know what happen to the kid, either a bad year or he's still good except Mason is just better.
I think it is pretty obvious that Mason and Leclaire are both a byproduct of Hitchcock's system in Columbus. I never thought Leclaire was that good of a goalie. Mason, on the other hand, is very good. He is getting lots of support from the team though.
In the 8 games (7 L, 1 OTL or shootout - don't remember) that Steve Mason has lost, the Jackets scored a total of 9 goals. The outcome of this game depends significantly more on whether the CBJ can score any goals rather than prevent them. They've been doing fine preventing them.
Mason is very calm and collected in the net. He is also huge 6'4" and catches with the "wrong" hand.
Leclaire got injured earlier in the season, they called up Mason and he basically stole the job from Leclaire. When Pazzy has played, he has not looked good.
Took 10 posts today to get to it today. It's improving
Oh, Arnason still sucks but Clark has played well (or not bad? however you wish to see it) the last two games. We give our props to the deserving. It's not like we WANT to see our players do badly.......for the most part.
