On Rutledge, some nerves were to be expected...first start in over a month...a handful of starts all year...lots of pressure for him to perform to keep playing. He clearly had issues with bouncing pucks, and did not use his stick on three different goals where a poke of the stick would have worked wonders. Those things can be coached up.
I'm happy he played in goal both nights...we need to see if he can improve and gain confidence. The team certainly played well in front of him.
