Who’s Your Goalie for Game 6?

Apr 25, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

Peter Laviolette is faced with a tough decision between not two but
three goalies for tomorrow’s win-or-go-home game 6 in Buffalo. The team
has somehow managed to play three different guys in five games, with no
injuries factoring into the decision making. Sergei Bobrovsky was on a
tiny leash, being shown the bench and ultimately the press box less than
four periods into the postseason. Brian Boucher relieved him and held
up for a 2.5 games before he too was shown the bench, this time in favor
of last season’s playoff hero-turned-goat, Michael Leighton. Leights
didn’t see much action early—just seven shots over the final four
minutes of the first period and all of the second. He turned aside all
11 he saw in the third, but gave up a big rebound that factored heavily
into the Sabres’ OT winner.

At this point, which guy do you have the most confidence in for getting a W in game 6? The least?
