He had a miserable period, but the Canadiens weren't exactly playing well in front of him.
His regular season numbers are decent. I'm baffled by it, but we shall see.

In his career, Budaj has a miserable playoff record, even preceding his time in Montreal. Meanwhile, Tokarski has been a winner at every level his played in, capturing the Memorial Cup with Spokane in 2008, winning World Junior gold for Canada in 2009, and winning the Calder Cup with Norfolk in 2012.

Essentially, they feel the ceiling is higher with Tokarski than Budaj, and are hoping to catch lightning in a bottle.

There is precedent for this. In 2006, Dwayne Roloson was injured in the Stanley Cup finals, and Edmonton went with their third stringer, Jussi Markkanen, who played well enough to help extend the series to 7 games.

Why hasn't anyone thrown Michael Leighton into the mix here is my question.

He's another example of a goalie that comes out of nowhere and has a great playoffs. It's not unheard of.

Alright, we just gave up altogether.

Roll on, game 3.

Gave away two goals and then everything snowballed. Pretty embarrassing, but it's a long series.

Word has it James Neal is requesting a trade.

Not too sure if it's true though.

Absolutely horrible game from the Hawks tonight. Horrible defense, lousy goaltending and once again piling up penalties in the 3rd, which is when you need to play your most disciplined hockey. Even if we somehow win this, we still sucked tonight.

I don't think the Kings were anything special either (four shots in the 2nd? Four penalties in a row? Are you fucking kidding me?), but they were better when they had to be.

This is probably the first time all playoffs that Rangers fans are letting themselves get excited.

Crawford needs to be pulled. This is fucking embarrassing. What is this, 12 goals in five periods? It's not like our defense has been outstanding, but there's a 50% chance of it going in the net this period.

Fuck, I have no interest whatsoever in Rangers/Kings. This sucks.

Can't exactly say this is the best game I've ever seen, no.

Welp.
