It's rare to have a game where the goalie isnt asked to stand on his head to only have 1 or 2 goals allowed. It's just not reasonable. When is the last time the Penguins skaters played a game that made it an easy night for the goalies?
Nice story, except it falls apart tonight. They gave up 20 shots in regulation on the road. They have consistently given their goalies leads to work with as well.
There was no "hanging out to dry" tonight or in Philly, or against Philly at home either.
In fact, to the contrary, this team continues to OVERCOME subpar goaltending.
