“…how ordinawy.”

That’s what Lili Von Shtupp, the femme fatale of Blazing Saddles, said when Hedley Lamarr gave her some flowers.  Her comments would be appropriate to describe Steve Mason’s performance last night against the Kings.  Be that as it may, Stevie Franchise is now our man in goal as the team traded Pascal Leclaire this morning to Ottawa.  Aaron Portzline got this one right.

Anyway, Scott Howson must believe that Mason is just going through a difficult period right now and that he will return to to his old form soon.  If he doesn’t, the team is right back to ground zero.  You know things are bad when Hitchcock didn’t even thnk about pulling Mason last night.  I was at the game and I’ve seen better goaltending in the Capital Hockey Conference JV Division.  But the team won, something a good team has to do when everything is not going well; just find a way, baby.
