So is this the year we won't get one shutout?
 
Anyone else getting frustrated with this concept? Tonights game we were up 3-0 going in to the 3rd period, and BAM, it's 3-2. We always play it so well until the 3rd in these 2 period shutout games then surrender some crap goals to ruin the shutout. With the quality and money we put in to this defense, it seems ridiculous that after all these games, being the best team in the East, that we wouldn't even have one shutout.

I don't mean to be a dick, but there was an almost identical thread made about this like 3 days ago :/

But alas I can't find it currently so...Yeah, **** our goalies man! :D

This. And if it holds to be true I'm fine with that.

Couldn't care less if we never get another shutout ever.

Only stat that matters is after game 82, the Flyers go 16-x.

Giroux tha Damaja 02-16-2011 11:15 PM

Do not care. I doubt Boucher or Bob really care that much either. It's all about W's.

When you look at the big picture, our Goalie's GAA and team GAA are amazing considering we haven't had a shutout.

StandingCow 02-17-2011 03:27 AM

Who cares about shutouts? Wins for the... win? :D

SolidSnakeUS 02-17-2011 03:57 AM

I'd save them for the playoffs. Make teams scared of us when we run for the cup.

JCameron418 02-17-2011 06:23 AM

if winning this much means the team doesn't get shutouts then I'm ok with that.

Jimmy Villa 02-17-2011 07:22 AM

Have to agree with the others, S/O's are fairly irrelevant as long as the points/wins are there.
Especially when the GAA and S% are looking healthy.

However, it does make you wonder about the team switching off once they think the game is won, and that is a bad habit to take into the post season

(Just ask Boston ;))

Orange Crush 89 02-17-2011 09:18 AM

Who cares, just win the ****ing cup.

Fixed that for you. I've always been of the belief that if you (goalie/team) have a great GAA and also have lots of shutouts that means among all those goose eggs you had higher-than-average goals allowed in other games which would make you somewhat inconsistent. If you can put up a great GAA without shutouts it means you're getting the job done on an everyday basis. Think about it.

Spav1789 02-17-2011 09:39 AM

Who cares as long as we keep winning.

Boucher: 14-6-2 | 2.27 GAA | .920 SV%

Bobrovsky: 23-8-3 | 2.42 GAA | .920 SV%


I don't see the problem here... To have stats that good without a shutout is quite remarkable. Goaltending has not been an issue for the Flyers at all this year, even though every team seems to want "help" us by selling us their overpriced, under performing goalie. Because this team apparently isn't allowed to have good goaltending.

DrinkFightFlyers 02-17-2011 10:32 AM

5-4 win = 2 points
1-0 win = 2 points

Any questions?

Mentioned this before and Jester brought up some stats of prior goalies winning the cup. A .920 save % seems to be the magic number for a goalie to perform well enough to bring home a cup and do his part. Having both goalies at that range bodes well. Now I will say both Bob and Boucher are going to have to steal a series or two along the road to the cup..

KimiFerrari 02-17-2011 11:17 AM

I think it will be like a few years ago, when we didn't allow one shorthanded goal....until the very last game against the rags.

It has been a fun ride thus far.

See my point for further info.

The lack of shutouts is NOT the problem.

The mindset of having games sewn up already and letting in stupid goals IS the problem, especially with play offs around the corner.

Nobody will take pity on a relaxed attitude towards shut outs around play off time.

Better to get the mindset in place now than pay for it later

Yeah... that was me... but my opinion changed when someone made the comment: "We are saving them for the playoffs."

I do maintain that it is frustrating to watch, but the counterpoints to the arguement cannot be denied.
