I said Elliott needs to be better. What's wrong with that? He could have been better for sure, and would be a huge help to the team if he saved a few of those goals (the backhander from Adams). He got the job done, and I fully believe that it was first playoff game jitters. Shake it off and play like we know you are fully capable off and beyond.
Totally agree here. It's not worth arguing your point about Elliott with N4L. He could let in 4 soft goals and have a .600 save percentage and he'd still say he doesn't need to improve at all as long as the Sens win. It could be a 9-8 final. It wouldn't matter.
500 save % and 16 W's, dont care. He found a way to win. That's what a good goaltender does.
Is there a point in argueing with me on that, nope there isnt. I'll take the goalie who wins over Turco who had somehting like a 920 save % and 3 SO in one series and lost. All that matters are the wins, that's it.
Elliott has won on every level and is starting to win in The NHL on every level now as well.
How many Cup winning goalies have an 800 save percentage and 4 GAA in the playoffs?
I bet Fuhr has something below 900 and a GAA around 4 in one of the playoff runs. Point being is that wont be the norm every game and if The Sens dont clear the front of the net and stop taking minors, they will be in trouble.
Point being is he found a way to win, that's all that matters right now.
I think you're not giving enough credit to the guys that scored the 5 goals. Elliott is the goalie that was in the net when the Sens won but it was far from all him finding a way to win.
