Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate:
Andersen or Campbell?

So far, responses on here favor Campbell.  I don't feel strongly about it, but I do think this is a near-perfect opportunity to get Andersen in there for a game.  If we had lost tonight (and Campbell had played well) then the decision would be fairly agonizing.  But up 2-1?  I see a strong argument that, while they have to run the risk of wearing out their goalie, we don't need to.  It's not like Andersen is a perennial backup.  And if he picked up a win it would be huge.

I think Campbell's been playing good, but not sure it's good enough to force the coaching staff to start him back-to-back over another qualified NHL starting goalie. So if Andersen doesn't start it says quite a bit about how much faith the team has in him right now. I think he'll start though.

The Byron goal in game one was just bad.  You want to see him stop Suzuki tonight but Nick wired a good, if not great, shot.  Otherwise I think Campbell has been really, really solid ... against a low-firepower team.  So I agree with you, the decision says a lot about what the coach thinks about Andersen's readiness.  Relatedly, if they do start him it sends a signal that hey, we're not afraid to run our other guy out against you. 

Guilt Trip:
If Campbell can go, he goes. It's about putting your foot on their neck right now and Jack is doing just fine.
