“I don’t know if it’s fair to evaluate him,’’ Yeo said. “That last goal, he could have that one, maybe, but the other two … what is he supposed to do?

“I’m not saying he’s on top of things like earlier, but I’m not concerned. He showed me in the past he can come back, and he will again.’’

So, that means there has been a perceptible decline in the young man’s play? Kuemper was asked how he’s dealing with life as a No. 1 goalie in the stretch of an NHL season.

“Great; it’s a lot of fun,’’ he said. “That’s why you’re here, to play. That’s the only way to help your team win.’’

Bryzgalov figures to start Sunday night in the rematch with Detroit.

“I haven’t heard,’’ Kuemper said. “If I get a chance to go back-to-back, I’m all for it. Either way, Bryz or me, we got to go into Detroit and win a game.’’

Please do so … for the coach, if no one else.


Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500.
