from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
The Senators goaltender instituted a new policy today of not speaking with his good friends in the media on game day as he prepares to start tonight against the Washington Capitals at Scotiabank Place.
Emery, making only his third start of the season, has to win tonight if he is going to have any chance of wresting the No. 1 job from goalie Martin Gerber, who has emerged as the club’s clear-cut top man in the net so far this season.
“I don’t care what (Emery’s) like to you guys (in the media),” said coach John Paddock this morning at the Senators’ game-day skate. “The people he’s responsible to are his teammates and the organization. You have a certain standard you have to live up to, but who says that has to be happy all the time ... It’s good to be surly.”
