-He doesn't speak English.
-He's never had a goalie coach in his life.
-We were playing one of the best teams in the NHL.
-I heard that the 1st goal he let in was due to an equipment malfunction, but I haven't see any confirmation of that. If it's true though then, really, he only let in one goal that was his fault and it was an incredibly tough deflection at that.
Considering all of those things, he did terrific. We got the win and that's all that matters. Teams hit posts and miss empty nets all the time. It's part of the game and to attribute it to "luck" or being "unlucky" is just pure ********. Good teams make their own luck. If hitting the post or missing the net entirely counted as a goal then the Pens probably would have won, but guess what, they don't.
If the Pens and their fans want to win next time then try not hitting the ****ing post.
Do people just ignore what I write? Why does everyone act like I said Bob played poorly? I said he played well, he made some great saves, but there were also a lot of times he nearly gave me a heart attack.
