Brian Boucher and Sergei Bobrovsky say hello. They posted a .916 and a .914 save percentage respectively playing behind the same system with the defense just as mistake prone (at least in the second half).

I think a defensive system would help, but it's absurd to pretend that no goalie could play in Laviolette's system when garbage like Leighton and Boucher had no problem.

If there is any problem it's that the Flyers lost/got rid all of their best defensive forwards and lost Pronger due to injury.

That doesn't give Bryzgalov a free pass for playing like an AHL goalie, however.
