His statistics point to him having a productive post season: 7 points, 6 PP points, a +2, but he is not passing my WTF is he doing test.
Goligoski has had hands of stone this series, routinely failing to gather in pin point passes while trying to sneak back door. He has turned the puck over more in his own end then any player I have seen in recent memory and when was the last time that he hit anyone?
Montreal has shown, to anyone that was blind to the obvious that playing solid in your own end can lead to success in the playoffs. With Leopold back from injury isn’t it time to sit Go Go and bring in the more physical, more defense first Jay McKee. McKee is a solid D-man that can be put on the ice to kill penalties and can be counted on to block five to six shots per game. Goligoski only blocks shots by accident. Playing against a team that is opportunistic rather than offensively oppressive, to me it seems only logical to play people that will reduce the number of opportunities you give up. You can bet that the Habs will come out flying tonight, would you rather see a D-man that it hitting ,blocking shots, and getting the puck deep or one that turns over the puck near his own blue line trying to make a cute behind the back pass?
