Day after Gameday Comments

To be honest, there weren't a whole lot of Theo-specific comments out there in the internets today. Writers are focusing more on the overall woes of the Wild. It's not a pleasant time up there right now. I feel bad for the team, and I hope for everyone's sake they can turn things around a bit.

Here were a couple comments from Glen Andresen's in-game commentary last night:

Period 3

17:38 - Theodore knows how to use those leg pillows. He comes up with a huge kick save on a point blank shot from Chris Neil in the low slot. Theodore is keeping this a game, but the Wild has to get something going offensively. The boys really haven't threatened much since the too many men call.

5:59 - Once again, it's Theodore doing everything he can to keep his team alive. Kuba joins an Ottawa rush and fires a hard wrist shot from the slot. This time, Theo is quick to react with a stellar stop with the waffle glove.

Then from Andresen's "Five Takeaways" from the game:

"José Theodore got the start tonight, as Richards wanted to keep the team’s hottest goaltender between the pipes. Theo certainly didn’t disappoint in making 22 saves and yielding just two goals, neither of which would have been considered bad goals. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Niklas Backstrom  had a rough outing in Anaheim, but is also having one of his best seasons other than three or four bad starts. Theodore has been consistent, but I don’t think he’s considered the number one starter at this point. Stay tuned."

Last night before the game the Hockey Wilderness guys over at SB Nation asked this question:
How does Theodore look in a chance to seize the throne?
Their answer:
 2 goals allowed on 24 shots... better numbers than Backs for sure... the plot thickens.
