Maybe Manny could have performed better coming in cold like that (Manny's specialty), but I doubt many other goalies in the league would have fared any better in that situation. Osgood gave us a chance to win this game and a ****** break cost us in the end.
one goal allowed coming in cold is understandable. 3 is something different. After that - yes, Osgood gave a chance to come back although Atlanta's goalie helped as well.
Both goalies did not let in any softies but they did not save the team's arses when it was needed
Hence, goaltending is a concern as there is a number of goalies in the league that are capable of fishing their teams outta deep water
