Honestly, he looked solid enough in coming off of the bench and getting hit with a handful of shots sporadically that I don't really think it'll be an issue for him. Or at least, not as big of an issue as it can be for others...virtually every goalie will play better if they get into a rhythm with a good amount of shots. Except maybe Leighton.

The good thing about him is that he's very active moving through the crease and getting out to play the puck a little, even if it's just touching it down for the D. Both of those things usually make it easier to feel 'in the game' when you're not getting a lot of shots.
