Habs Win, And The World Returns To Normal
Scott Gomez on the Canadiens' goaltending after the Capitals Alexander Ovechkin thought Jaroslav Halak was shaking in Game Two:
"Jaro got us here and [Carey] Price got us here," Gomez said. "He's the one who's been answering the bell and he's the reason we're standing here talking to you guys right now. He's a professional; he's been in huge games for his country."
Someone asked if he'd offer some words of encouragement before Monday's Game 3 and Gomez said he didn't think it would help, as he really has no idea what goalies do anyway.
"I don't know anything about goaltending, I don't know if anyone else does," he said. "So, I don't know if I can go up and talk to him. I guess in knee hockey I was pretty good at goaltending.
"I think that's why they have a goaltending coach. Especially goaltenders, they're different all around. They're weirdoes anyway, so I don't think I can make any sense to him anyway. You'd have to have some set of nuts to go up to the goaltender and tell him what you think at this level, that he should be doing [something] different, especially in the playoffs."
