Also mathman brings up the 100 point pace since the 1-5-2 start and interestingly enough that coincides with price have a .929 sv % and 2.05 gaa over that period as well. I think tonight he cost them atleast a point but that second goal shouldnt have counted since rinaldo was pushing him away from the puck and the fact that the our goal was disallowed for less. Simmons goal I dont know what is expected of him when the puck is knocked to the other side of the net with his hand, the only thing that stops that is some old fashion crease clearing but we do not have the ability to do that. He also mentions that price hasnt stolen any games which is completely untrue he sealed the end of the NJD game just a few games ago maybe mathman missed that.
As far as the out shooting the opponents goes, I would take them getting outshot all day if they gave up less quality chances.
Stealing a game is not 'sealing the last 10 minutes', it's being out shot 40-20 and winning. How many times this year has CP done that?
More important than stealing games is not losing them. The evidence is showing that CP is giving up
game tying and winning goals in the 3rd period. A whole damn lot.
Blame the D all you want. JM does. Great goalies steal games, and they shut it down most of the time when it counts,
no matter what is in front of them.
CP is not doing this, this year so far.
I love CP, but this is not the year you should be saying he's saving our ass. He is not. Why do people deny this? It's not shameful. We don't hate CP. It's just the truth.
