I could stand us getting beat by good plays from another team. I can't stand us getting beat when our defenseman takes the pass away on a 2-1, and Boucher decides to take the pass as well just to get beat by a high snipe glove side. Inexcusable. Boucher and our team really don't have any chemistry.
Wait, I thought goalie isn't important and it really doesn't matter as long as you have a good team in front of 'em?

And I love how you reference a goal that is exactly what you would expect a butterfly goalie to give up. Boucher wasn't playing the pass, he was playing his style...which means going down...which means giving the shooter the corner.

Credit the shooter, that was a great shot.

This would be a good story, except he's only given up more than 3 goals in regulation once during this stretch, and the entire team was terrible in that outing.

He's a backup...he's not a starter...and it sucks that this is the position we're in, but to suggest Boucher has been a catastrophe is a joke. We're not scoring. The PP isn't getting it done, and we're not converting chances.
