dagies Posted March 17, 2003 Share Posted March 17, 2003 I have been critical this season of the goaltending. So much so that I felt it was fair to have one thread for Jake after this weekend. What can you ask of a goalie? Give your team a chance to win. All Jake did this weekend was play 9+ periods of hockey and give up 2 goals each game. What more can you ask for? I'll be honest. In OT I was dying because I had more confidence in Berkhoel than I did in Jake. I felt like it would take a heck of an opportunity for the Sioux to score, but every shot on Jake had me sucking in my breath. But I have to offer up this apology to Jake. You got the job done, and you did it very well. You put the team on your back this weekend and gave them a chance to win. And they needed everything you could give them to get it done. This isn' t the national championship, but similar to Hauser, Jake can ask us "What do you think of me now?". Well, we couldn't have asked for anything better than what you gave this weekend. Jake is the player of the series IMO. The story of the weekend. Heck of a job, Jake. Heck of a job. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
