If the Greyhounds don't start getting some quality goaltending, it's going to be a quick playoff exit.

Goaltending is only as good as the players in front of him. Sundays game against Peterborough was a prime example of this. Short handed goal and 2 power play goals against. Tighten the defence and stay out of the box.

If that's the case, maybe I should play in net!
