Looks like Tampa might be slowly losing faith in McElhinney. They started Chris Gibson in backup rotation game last week and he's very much a career third wheel. Vasilevskiy may well be the best goalie in hockey right now, but he's always been susceptible to wearing down with too much work.McElhinney is looking particularly good tonight.
Given how he looked the last two games, that's 100% fair. He looks .... umm ... older than he actually isHakanpaa is practicing today, paired with Bean. I guess that means Gardiner is headed back to the taxi squad. Mrazek and Ned are the goalies.
