That third goal was deflected way up high; there was time to adjust. The second goal that hit Staal's butt Hank was not in position. He was too far to the left, was he screened? Maybe, but it's the goalie's job to find the puck and get in position and that shot in hockey terms was in the air for a long time. The first one cannot be blamed on him. If he's great then he needs to play great and he's not.
I found this funny. Trying to direct most of the blame to the goalie that went into last nights game with a .922 save%, and then defending Gaborik as only deserving "some" of the blame when he's genuinely had a terrible year.
