Same Old Horseshit From Gerber
I don't know what's more disturbing: Jiri Hudler congratulating Chris Osgood after the game by flicking his tongue in and out like a snake for ten seconds or Martin Gerber being unable to close out a game in which he had built up so much goodwill with the fans and his teammates.
Like Greg Millen said on the broadcast, Gerber didn't look pretty, but he was getting the job done. He was losing his stick and letting out his usual assortment of rebounds but he was making some big saves. Even I was beginning to believe, and that's saying something.
The first Johan Franzen goal saw Gerber go down early but at least it was a near perfect shot. The second goal was inexcusable, even if it was deflected. It was rolling on the ice and he was in position. It just went through him.
While Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley were terrible the whole game, the Senators would have stolen at least a point if not for the Gerber gaffe.
When will Gerber and his horde of media apologists simply run out of excuses?
Martin Gerber is a horseshit goalie and he has been since donning a Senators uniform.
The only question that remains is how much damage he has yet to inflict on the team.
