    Strangely two of the last 5 Cups have gone to teams whose goalie had zero NHL playoff experience.

    Really, trotting out Campbell over a healthy Andersen for Round 1 is one of those "so crazy it just might work" type of ideas.

    Not my cup of tea personally and I doubt that's Dubas/Keefe's either.

    At least if they fail with Andersen again they can safely absolve themselves of at least some of the blame and then not re-sign him.

    Failing with Campbell on the other hand...

    Not even that strange.

    Since the cap, Ward and Niemi also won with zero playoffs experience.

    Quick and Fleury and Crawford won on maybe their 2nd tries iirc?

    On the flip side starting Andersen in the playoffs after a month of a half of no game action is a pretty risky idea too. Particularly considering Andersen struggled a bit when healthy this year and last, and has not had a great playoff track record to date.

    IMO Keefe will run the hot-hand to start the playoffs. I only see Andersen starting if both Campbell and Rittich struggle in these remaining games. I imagine all three goalies have a short leash at this point.

    My guess is to capture the lead-in crowd from the Sens v Canucks game that starts at 530pm. This game is not on NBCSN so it had to be a Rogers decision.

    I prefer 7pm. Growing up out east I do no miss the old 9pm HNIC start times in the pre-double-header days.

    Anything that's not a 7PM start is lame.
