    McBackup is third best goalie in Carolina history (after Irbe/Ward). Rofl.

    Last I remember was Marty Broduer in 2011. I think Zac Dalpe got his 1st that night

    McElhinney is legit. He has the occasional stinker game but his getting hurt and the season going into the toilet are pretty directly correlated

    We got the Canucks goalie Ryan Miller subbed out in that wild 8-6 game two years ago.

    Also his mask is fantastic. Simple and all team logos- no personal stuff except on the very back. Pro

    I agree we missed him, but unless he's got a way to win when we get shut out, I don't think it affected wins and losses a whole lot. Unless you think McElhinney's injury affected our offensive production as well, in which case, I'm willing to listen.

    Man I wish the leafs still had McBackup, I have no faith in Sparks especially if he needs to play in the playoffs.

    I don't know why we don't get this kind of performance more often. It's extremely frustrating.

    I understand why we went with Sparks, i.e the decision to give the guy who played well on route to a title in the AHL the chance...its just hindsight it looks bad so far

    I don't think we should make any judgments about individual players based on the way the Flyers are playing today. It's like us judging Kuokkanen or Roy when the entire team is a sh!t show.

    This game would be 0-0 if Neuvirth started. We're not playing any better than Philly. We got gifted three goals by a goalie who wasn't ready to play today.

    Did you guys see that gif on reddit of Tom Wilson nearly crushing Aho with his head down behind the net- but he bails out on the hit uncharacteristically?
