The Malkin goal should have been stopped.  Went right through him.  Malkin had nowhere to go as Karlsson kept him to the outside and Ryan was covering #57.  This wasn't a clear breakaway it was a stoppable shot.  It went in between his blocker arm and his body, so it's not like Malkin picked a corner.  And it wasn't tipped.  It was awful!

Second one was more on Karlsson, perhaps, or Neil tripping over an imaginary line, but then the puck carrier (after Neil's plunge) was way over at the boards.  No way he could shoot and score from there, the way he was positioned, but Anderson was way over to his right, deep in the crease.

Look how far over he is just as the pas comes across.  Did he think Cullen was going to rim it around and was preparing to go behind the goal?  At most he should have his right skate on the post, and preparing to push off if there is a pass.  He's not even close to being in the correct position.

Seriously? Yesterday could easily have been 7-0. The Sens didn't play, Anderson did.

When the Sens played a great 2 periods and then coasted in the third we dragged them over the coals a little bit. Same thing here. He played great but that first goal should never have gone in. This wasn't Guy flying in off the wing and putting it just inside the post. This was a shot that went in between his arm and his body. On the other goal he clearly was not in position as he should have been up against the post.

I'm not saying he's bad -- his SV% clearly indicates he's doing pretty well, and he is 3-1 after all, but he needs to stop letting in bad ones. It's early, I get it, and O'Connor should have remained a backup (that early in the season you can afford to keep him in, get in a groove). But I still want to see him play better.

Meh, that's one of the great ones scoring on him. It's a little tougher than Chris Neil coming down the wing. Plus, it's a team game. The team needs to support him and they really didn't yesterday.

As mentioned, there's no need to panic yet, but Saturday's game will be telling IMO.
