Why isn't Nitty playing more games than Biron yet?

I concur that my use of the word stellar is an exaggeration, but he played
I think it was 75'ish shots over those two game, yeah.
Not discounting the wins, but I the 'shots on goal' stat isn't always a telling tale, much like +/- IMO. How many of them were quality scoring chances, that's the key. I mean, if a defenseman on the other team shoots it down the ice from his end, and it happens to be on net, that's a shot on goal. Sure, the goalie had to make the save, but a 'shot on goal' like that should NEVER go in.
Niitty is great in short stints, but Biron gives us the best chance on winning. Play them both down the stretch, 3 games to 1 in favour of Biron...unless one of them drops off. We need to somehow get Marty to where he was last April.
