In addition, can anyone explain the similarities and differences in each of Lindback's and Rinne's games? Compare/contrast? Thanks again I don't get to see too much of the Predators.
Its a combination of a few things. First off, Mitch Korn is an absolute genius. I've had the incredible chance to work with him personally, and he plain and simple understands the game and how to play it. He is the reason Hasek was so good in Buffalo.

Second, its the system. We play some great team defense and clear away rebounds and other dangerous chances with the best of them. So our goalies all look very good.

In fairness to someone like Ellis, Tampa Bay has NO defense. He's just in an awful situation there (no making excuses, just defending him a little.
