The second goal was a bad angle shot, one that Lundqvist probably should have had, but the last person you should blame on a 3-on-1 goal is the goaltender (when a 3-on-1 occurs, something has fundamentally went wrong).

The third goal, Malkin, skated past a flailing Del Zotto, went to his back hand and roofed it on a nasty shot that would have beaten any goaltender in the NHL.

I just don't see how he was bad. He let up 3 goals on 36 shots and he didn't have a chance on 2 of them.
Hard to blame the goalie tonight. all the pens goals tonight came on odd man rushes. could he have stopped the 2nd, maybe. but its a frkn 3 on 1. give him a break.
