Legace Is A Drama King

from the Detroit Free Press,
The enduring image of Saturday's 3-2 loss to Edmonton was of Manny Legace lying on his stomach for a good 10-count after giving up a goal. This happened on at least two of the goals. And Legace's teammates didn't come over to help him up or console him, probably because they have seen this many times before. Legace is a drama king. He has been for years. Publicly, Legace's teammates defend him. It would be nice if Legace defended his teammates, but he didn't really do it after Game 5. When asked if Edmonton goalie Dwayne Roloson was "phenomenal," here is what Legace said: "Uh ... yeah, he was pretty good tonight. He's seeing all the shots. You're not going to beat him when you don't have traffic. It's as simple as that. He's seeing everything. His defensemen are letting him see everything. You're not going to beat him just by shooting. You're not."
