I am not bashing our defense. Hank finally plays the way I wanted him to play for the last 5 years when this board called all kind of names to my critique. So I do not buy a "Lundqvist has always been good and now D plays well in front of him" argument. I am not saying that we will see the same result over and over should our defense be completed entirely from Wales, but you've got my point.
Boston has a pretty elite blue line led by Chara and they regularly give up 30-40 SOG a game. FORTY. Detroit hovers around 30 SOGA per game too. I would put Pittsburgh in that boat too. 30 is pretty normal. I think it's the number of quality chances you need to track. I case may be dug up there.
