In massive losses like this, it's hard to find things to say, so I usually fall back on humor.

This one was so bad that, to be honest, I struggle with words.

Thank goodness there's FailBlog.

Now, Roy Halladay may not even know how to skate, but I have to think he'd have been a better goalie tonight than Steve Mason.

At this point, I don't even question Mason anymore - I am seriously doubtful of Dave Rook's suitability as a goalie coach. Rook was brought in from the London Knights to help develop and refine Mason two years ago, and since his arrival, the young franchise netminder has proceeded straight to hell. 

At some point, Mason is simply not being prepared adequately to play, and I really wonder what the hell Rook is doing if he can't get his supposed protege on track for two years.

Good on Kristian Huselius for delivering the hat trick. Bad on Steve Mason for letting in 6 goals, four of which were buttery soft.

The Jackets will be taking on the Dallas Stars here at Nationwide on Saturday. Here's a hunch that Mathieu Garon will be in net.
