He is better on point shots (huets big weakness... and something that gets set up by every PP in the league).
He's physically bigger than Huet.... more deflections will naturally hit him.
His puck tracking has really improved from earlier in the year, credit Rollie Melanson.
Having Begin and Smolinski in the lineup helps also IMHO. Begin is a fearless shot blocker and Smolinski is smart and good on faceoffs which often leads to clearings.
