Who's this Allison kid?

I knew that Nashville rookie goaltender Brian Finley was rocked for seven goals in his first start the other night, but I didn't realize this was the scenario after starter Chris Mason pulled his groin in the warmup:
On Tuesday, backup Chris Mason pulled a groin in the pre-game warmup and No. 3 Brian Finley went in the net with defenceman Jamie Allison dressed as the backup goalie.
You can bet coach Barry Trotz's fingers were crossed mighty tight that nothing happened to Finley during the game (not that it could get any uglier than allowing seven goals to Florida).

I was sitting there watching the game thinking, "put him in, it can't get any worse!"

A damn rare site, and it would have been fun to watch. For whatever reason it reminded me of Wade Boggs pitching for the Yankees, throwing 70ish mph fastballs and having guys in the dugout laugh, even though they were losing the game bad.
