What's talked about? How the rangers beat the flyers 3-2 in the winter classic. The # of saves made by the goalies is mentioned far less then the 5 goals scored in the game.

The highlights do show some of the big saves, but it centers more around the goals scored IMO.

Oh, and forget about defensemen. They get zero recognition. Great defensive plays are rarely, if ever shown on the highlights (I can't remember seeing any, ever). What does happen (a goal getting scored) gets a lot more attention then what didn't happen (a great scoring chance being taken away).
It's frustrating for those who like the defensive side of the game. And we have a very, very defensive team.
