Laviolette shouldda played Gerber. Not because Ward was bad-- IMO he was not-- but because the Oilers had figured out how to score on him in Game 5, and obviously continued on from there in Game 6. Switching goalies on them would have bought them a bit more room to let Cole have a go getting his legs back. (Maybe the 'Canes expected to lose 6 and used it as a practice a tempo for Cole!)

And wasn't it a shame that there were ice problems that were only just resolved in time for the game's start? And after the "Canes had so much trouble skating on it before?!

GO OILERS! Right up to 7's closing buzzer, maybe overtime, is my bet.
