This is an amazing story. I can't get over it.

Name any player and they've done their part. Even Legwand and Chiasson are starting to chip in.

I seem to recall a team won a Cup, recently, with an anemic PP. Smile

Yep, his play has come back to earth a little bit, but the important thing is the Ws keep adding up.  His performances against Boston and Toronto were fairly medicore...but thankfully the entire lineup is starting to score.

Mediocre? Against Boston, sure, he let in 3, but the first two (especially the second one) were deflections from in-close, there was an extended 5-on-3 and Karlsson pretty much stepped on him in the crease.

Against the Leafs, again, a couple of deflections and the perfect screen by Karlsson. Deflections from in close means their forward outworked the defender to get position and to get their stick in the right place. Not a reflection on how well or how poorly the goalie is playing. In each game he still made excellent saves in other situations.

Look, it's not like the Sens limited the opposition to 21 shots on goal and Hammond managed to squeeze out a 5-3 win.

Compare that to Anderson's last two outings and there's really not much of a choice.

A bit like this (substitute appropriate goalie/team names):

You can spout your nonsense all you want and I will still be right.

I agree. He's still solid, but he doesn't look unbeatable anymore. Thankfully, the Sens are rolling anyway.

Yeah, he's done great as staying injured. It's great.

It's also nice because when Matrix is healthy I'm not nervous about him having to step in at any point. The team's success seemed too fragile before to do that but, if the Hamburglar faulters to the point of needing a switch I'm not as worried anymore.

Yeah, I get the sense that it wouldn't really matter who is in net right now, though I'm happy to have the Hamburglar. Best case is we have a healthy Anderson and Hammond should we secure a playoff position.

How do you think that works? There must be some sort of limit...like only one combo at a time or something. Otherwise...well...it'd be raining McDonalds ALL THE TIME.

This is a flawed way of thinking. What they have done is gotten a city to believe again and buy into the team if nothing else. It's been incredible.
