Default Should Johnson or Elliott Start Game 4?

If you were deciding, who do you choose to start?

Give Elliott a chance to redeem himself but short leash?

Or do you go with Johnson, hoping he can win 4 straight against Anaheim?

I think I go with Elliott even though he was horrible tonight. I don't have much confidence in Johnson.

Johnson. Elliott doesn't deserve it.

Who cares.

Goals that should count might not, goals that shouldn't count will.

A penalty in one part of the game isn't in another.

It's farcical and as a result, nothing matters anymore.

Knowing Gulutzan I would say he sticks with Elliott. I would be fine with starting Johnson as they really have nothing to lose and maybe he could help change some momentum.

If Johnson is in the long term plans, then him, if not, Gillies.

Why would you have faith in either goalie? Coin toss. Or Gillies.

Yea, you. 24/7.

Nothing I said was pouting. It's a fact. The game is farcical.

You take that as an opportunity to continue whining and complaining, gloating that your initial complaining has been validated.

You're a miserable person.

Elliott.

He's better than Johnson, no debate, and while he hasn't been great you've got to stick with your guy. Rotten luck though, so hopefully he overcomes!

It's like Elliott's play decided to fall off a cliff after Game 1, the same way Hiller did at the start of the 2016 season. Really infuriating when he was practically a Conn Smythe-ish goalie for the Blues last year.

Glen needs to know when to go for the yank - Hartley was good at that and used it a lot to wake the team up.

I don't think there's any way Gillies starts unless Johnson isn't healthy to play.

Probably not a great thing for his development either to throw him into a playoff must win game.
