Makes people criticizing Price look pretty stupid though. Although no doubt the highly superficial types will only note that it's an extra L for him. An invincible goalie can do a lot to restore team confidence over time too -- it's the one way out of a death spiral.
Yeah, exactly, the fact we're doing worse than ever at 20 games makes it hard to be optimistic.
