Roloson Addresses Slow Start

from Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times,

Dwayne Roloson has said he is done discussing his age. But the Lightning goaltender on Tuesday understood it was something that needed to be addressed.

Getting tagged for 17 goals in his past three starts while turning 42 years old will do that.

“Oh, yeah,” said the league’s oldest player when asked if he is up to the physical challenge. “I just spent two hours on the ice. Physically, the challenge is there. Mentally, the challenge is there. It’s execution.”

That has not been there.

Roloson is 1-2-1 in four games with a 5.09 goals-against average that entered Tuesday last among 54 goalies listed by the NHL. His .858 save percentage was 50th. Only Ottawa’s Craig Anderson had allowed more goals than Roloson’s 18.
