Patrick Roy compared Ilya Sorokin to a Ferrari, but after missing three goals he put him in the garage. The Islanders are on the verge of being eliminated from the playoffs.

“In the first two games we had a Cadillac and today we chose a Ferrari,” Islanders coach Patrick Roy said of the decision to replace Semyon Varlamov with Ilya Sorokin. He recalled that Francois Allaire had once said the same thing about him and his Montreal partner, Brian Hayward.

Not that Cadillac is bad in any way. There were no complaints about Semyon Varlamov in the first games of the first round of the NHL playoffs – 2024 – he did his job, and it is not his fault that the attack failed, and in critical moments, when Carolina leans on the goal , The field can’t even get the puck out of the zone.

With the score 2-0 in favor of Carolina, for the third – and first home game – of the series, Rua switched to a Ferrari, but did not drive it until midway through the second half. Sorokin allowed three goals on 14 shots: two in the first half, another in the second, shortly after the Islanders managed to break the deadlock and the game was over for him.

The sadness of the day is that the Russian goalkeeper did not go to the substitute bench, but rather remained alone on the way to the stands, with his head bowed. A little later they brought him a chair, from where he sadly observed the period. Sorokin is extremely talented and a hard worker. He fights for the Islanders with all his might, has already dragged them to the playoffs almost single-handedly and now probably feels the weight of the world on his shoulders, even though the Islanders’ problems are far from him.

“It’s a shame Sorokin. He’s been standing in the hallway at full speed since he was replaced,” the Cam & Strick podcast sadly says on social media.

“The Ferrari broke down at the starting line, was sent back to the garage and now its season hangs in the balance,” the New York Post concluded grimly.

“Sorokin needs this summer more than anyone to recover and regroup. This was evident from the start and as the season progressed his confidence was completely shaken. It was very difficult to see what happened to him today,” wrote journalist Rob Taub.

“It is impossible not to sympathize with Sorokin. The boy gives his all, never shows emotions, never criticizes his teammates and is always focused on helping the team win. There is no doubt that he is disappointed by the result of today’s match. This is a tough year and he’s not the only reason,” says NHL website author Stephen Rosner.

Varlamov, who came on as a substitute, did not miss a goal, but this did not help the islanders: 2:3 in the match, 0:3 in the series. “We win and lose as a team. Sometimes we make changes because I, as a coach, feel that somehow we need to change the course of the game, regain the initiative. I won’t say anything more about this,” Rua said after the game.
