All were saveable but not necessarily "bad" except the winning goal. Bad angle, no screen. Gotta have that one.

Attackisback your memory must suck... You must of forgotten the last time we started Guzda vs London..Let me refresh it .. 4 goals on 14 shots.. I say at this point in the season with so much on the line you go with the older more matured vet. I wouldnt exactly blame sunday on Ollie

Not sure it's as much about blame as it is managing your goaltending. A 3 in 4 Eastern swing would have been a reasonable opportunity to give Guzda some playing time. He has to develop. Did Lafreniere become tired in the 3rd period in Ottawa? Not sure but he didn't look great. At least three of the four goals were quite stoppable without screen or deflection.

The Attack are 1-4 against London this season with only one blown lead, partially salvaged by an OT win early on this season. London has gotten points in all games against OS. They have to solve this apparent mental block with the Knights, as London is as probable of a 1st round match up as any.

Guzda should have started in Ottawa and then decided on how he played as to who starts Wed.

Guzda should have got one of the 3 this weekend, and I think that Gill may have been blinded by Ollie playing his old team.

Of course hindsight in 20/20 and if the Attack held on to that 3-0 it would have been all roses with a 6 point roadie.

No reason to get worked up. The boys have a chance tomorrow night to get 2 points from a division rival and we will see what Ollie and the team have got.

Starting Guzda tomorrow would be the 100% wrong decision and should not even be considered. I think you see Mack on Friday in Niagara.

0.0% chance that, barring injury, Guzda was starting Wednesday. It was never, ever going to happen no matter how the Ottawa game played out.

I don't think London the team was Mack's problem. I think London and the Bud were Mack's problem. So I would start him against London at home. Or if not as suggested against Niagara Friday. But he should get a start this week.

Wednesday night is a massive game, so to start Guzda in that game goes against almost everything that has been said on this board about the Attack's problems. If the team and fans were okay with Guzda going forward than that is fine, but you don't bring in the veteran and then start the rookie in a game like Wednesday night.

Veteran should have stopped a couple in the third period Sunday.

Ollie will get the start tonight hopefully Guzda Fri. Should he have started one on the weekend probably but the scheduling didn't work out. Do you start him in Peterbourgh with the square corners,not do you start him against Fronts ? and i'm guessing they gave Ollie the chance against his old team.Guzda probably has more stars than he was promised and I'll bet he was told before the season that come feb-mar don't expect many starts. Having said that I would like to see him get a few starts I feel he has earned them. Time will tell
