Career:

Reimer - 140 GP, .914 SV%
Pavelec - 288 GP, .906 SV%

The .911 Sv% Reimer put up this season in what was considered to be a poor performance by him would be the 2nd highest of Pavelec's career.

It's even worse if you look at 5 on 5 SV% - of goalies playing at least 41 games this season, Pavelec was 25th out of 25.  Of goalies playing at least 21 games, Pavelec was 53rd of 59 (Reimer 35th).  Last season, min 24 games, Pavelec 24/29 (Reimer 14th).

After the game, Pierce called his team 'soft' in terms of defense and rebounding. Pierce went 2/11. A semi-decent shooting night from the Truth would have completely changed the game.

Couldn't you say the same about Derozan in game 1?
I think that goes without saying. Though there are a coule differences. Game 1 was DeRozan's first playoff game ever. Game 2 was Pierce's 138th. And, correct me if I'm wrong, I don't remember DeRozan blaming anyone after the loss.

Ohhh I get where you're going with that now - more of a, 'Pierce should have shot better if he's going to call out his teammates' than a 'Raps got fortunate Pierce shot poorly' which is how I read it originally.

Whats up with Dickey....jeez after winning the Cy Young he has done squat. Every game is an an excuse: it was windy, it was sunny, too cold, too foggy....

What was last night's excuse?  He's been a slow starter even going back to his Cy Young season:

I thought he was fine too...it was Cecil that gave me a heart attack, then promptly bailed himself out.

He was REALLY good until that defensive miscue in the 6th, and I think Cruz turned on a 1-1 fastball (FB for some reason there) and Dickey got into trouble.  Pitched out of it in the 6th but then had 2nd and 3rd in the 7th - that one miscue seemed to really change things.

But I'm not saying he's pitched particularly well, but that it seems like he tends to start slow so I'm hopeful this is a continuation of that.  Was nice to see them score some runs during one of his starts too.

A quick comparison of Dickey’s numbers through five starts with the Mets in 2012, his Cy year, compared to five starts in 2014 support Thole’s analysis.

Through his first five 2012 starts Dickey was 3-1, with 30.1 innings pitched. He’d allowed 15 earned runs on 28 hits, with 10 walks and 28 strikeouts, and had given up seven home runs.

Heading into Tuesday’s outing against the O’s, Dickey had a 1-3 record with 23 innings pitched, allowing 16 earned runs on 23 hits, with 15 walks and 18 strikeouts. He had yielded two home runs.

There was a slim difference in Dickey’s average innings pitched and hits allowed between those two years. The big difference has been in more walks and fewer strikeouts, leading to more runs. When you add in his 2013 first-month numbers, the picture that emerges is of a consistently slow starter.

I kinda wish we had a 20 -25 goal player for only 4 mil a year.

Then you're in luck because the Leafs have a 30 goal scorer for $4.25 mil a year.

A weak PP call for Montreal, in Montreal, with 2:00 left in a tie game?  Wow, never saw that one coming.

I'm usually not one to complain a lot about the refs, but that's I'm thinking as well... just did not seem like an appropriate call.

And maybe you call that normally, but not after you've just let 5 or 6 infractions go in the 20 seconds before that.  Why that one?  Baffling.

Absolutely brutal.

What a joke after letting everything go.

Giroux just got his first shot of the SERIES 6:00 into the 2nd period of game 3.

I'm going to enjoy when Montreal runs into an actual NHL goalie.

Easily the worst team in the playoffs.  They look awful.

For the love of god, why was loup not yanked after walking 3 batters in a row?

Because Gibbons loves him and he's a dolt.

Well I think it's partly a product of his babying some of the starting rotation. Morrow was yanked after 5 innins, 2R and 95 pitches. It's more difficult to burn relievers when you still have half a game to finish.

Gibbons also loves to play the splits. So Loup, a LHP who can't throw a strike, might be more appealing to him versus a LHB in lieu of a fresh RHP. It's the same with Lind, who Gibbons sits against LHP despite his replacement is a barely minor league bat like Moses Sierra.

I understood the reasoning so I was okay with it.  Read that Loup had 13% of his career walks in that inning.  :o
