The goals in Colorado, atleast the two I had a great angle on, were not going to be saved either. Hejduk is a sniper and has a wonderful shot. Gloveside high is hard to save when it's shot right. He shot them right. I don't think Vokoun played particulary poor in either. Would it have been nice if he would have saved Hammy's bacon against Atl? Yes, would it have been nice if he would have stoned Hejduk? Yes, but to expect him to do it is not really fair.
That wrap around in the Atlanta game was a joke, as was Forsberg's goal, take away both goals and what happens.
