Lamoriello Won’t Accept Early Round Exit

from Mark Everson of the NY Post,

“The standards here are very high—it’s not something that will be accepted,” Lamoriello said. “It’s three years in a row. It’s not something you can hide. We have to look at it.

“Was this team playoff-built? There’s no question in my mind it was. It didn’t get it done. Start with the specialty teams. One team did it, one team didn’t.

“You can’t put any blame on goaltending. We’ve got goaltending.”

Lamoriello said he had high hopes for this team, which earned a 13th straight playoff berth, won a ninth Atlantic Division title, topped 100 points (103) for the 12th time and won its fifth Jennings Trophy for fewest goals-against.

“This team had the ability and potential to go a great distance,” Lamoriello said.
