32-16 . . . 33-16 after tomorrow.

It's the goalie's job to cover for turnovers, mistakes, sags in urgency. That job hasn't been getting done.

Did you know that the Flyers have averaged 28 shots against in games this year total but 24 shots against when Boucher is in net? It's not like he's getting hung out to dry left and right. Looking at the last 14 goals against over the last 4 games . . . half were soft, low percentage perimeter wrist shots, including last night's game winner.
