Jeff Blair gets burned for three goals in four minutes, but finishes the game.
Now, I'm sure poor defense and bad bounces were as much to blame, and maybe Muscutt figures he'd rather keep Carroll focused on Game 4.
But given what we know about playoff hockey, isn't there just a teensy-weensy possibility, amidst all the talk about three great goalies and "the Bugs don't have a back-up," that Carroll is not 100%? Could he actually have needed six days off?
"We decided today I was feeling a little better", Blair said after the three-OT game.
In any case, the Mudbugs don't get flustered easily -- things should go back to a defensive war on Friday.
