The one thing I find strange though is that Nitty tends to see far more shots during his performances.
Generally if a defense has confidence in their goalie they will let certain shots through and will play tighter allowing less shots for someone they do not feel as comfortable with.
I don't know if I am reading a bit too much into this but it's something I've noticed in my experience as a player.
I think the same way.
