Goals against would go up as shots against go up. That's how the whole SAVE% stat works TONY. Get it???
Shots allowed this season are way down. That's a very good thing...
As far as subjective thoughts go, you're darn right I think a #1 NHL goalie would have a better save% than either LaBarbera or Ersberg playing behind the current team playing the defensive game that they are.
More subjectivity: I think the Kings TEAM has, on most nights, done a very good job of limiting opponents quality scoring opportunities this season...
