Unfortunately, it is also that Boucher that recorded five straight shutouts for Phoenix. Also that Boucher that is 2-0 with a GAA of 0.00 and a save percentage of 1.000 so far this season. He is an extremely streaky goalie, and happens to be on the wrong side of the streak for Pens fans... :cry: :wink:

In response to Siggy, that streak has to end some time... and that time is tonight!

In response to the complaints about Sabu starting, look across the NHL... this season a huge number of back-ups are getting a lot of P.T. early. I believe there is a stat from last season which indicates that none of the final four teams (Pittsburgh, Detroit, Philadelphia and Dallas) had a goaltender which played more than either 60 or 70 games (big difference, I know)... but if it is 70, then that means that MAF is on pace to play in 64-65 games, I am very comfortable with that number. If we had Conklin still, I might advocate MAF only playing 55 games. Maybe Sabu will emerge like Ty did last season, he looked phenomenal in his first start and I hope he keeps it up.

Edit: Turco 62, Biron 62, Osgood 40 and Fleury 35 starts

The Pens are hoping for a 100+ game schedule so they'd be smart to work Sabourin in there as much as they can to avoid wearing Fleury out. Sabourin's a good goalie. They can win with him. You'd probably be safe to argue that they won because of him last time.

I, unfavorably I'm sure, agree with that. A couple of the saves that Sabu made on rebounds... I wasn't so sure MAF would have made. Dany was in a zone that night.
