Think of it this way. If Gibson stops both of those goals in the 1st it's a completely different game in the second and he is probably still focused enough to stop two of the next three he let in... Remember the same thing happened when he was put into the prospects game in the 3rd period. You can take a lot away from this game as far as Gibson goes. He still has issues with losing his confidence and maintaining his focus after he gives up a couple goals and he starts letting in soft goals at that point. His biggest flaw right now is mental and hopefully he builds in that area and he gets stronger with age. But to say you can't take anything away from this game is untrue, since had he made some of those saves and stood on his head we'd all be hailing him as the next big thing right now.
