No, the fact the premier goaltenders allow those kinds of goals means it's not really a bad goal.

Did you watch the videos?

I think a lot of people are. When it's all boiled down and the fluff is stripped away, "we" want Bryz to cover up for the fact that our coach has NO IDEA of how to teach this team to play defense. NONE.

A lot of people here don't want to come to grips with that fact so they need to find someone else to blame.

The second goal he needs to have for a multitude of reasons. The third goal I think he should have had as well. Bourdon made a bad turnover, but the puck stayed on the left side of the ice the whole time and Bryzgalov squared up to the shooter. Just got right through his legs.
I think I don't disagree with any of that. Except to say that if you watch that video of MAF you will see nearly the same exact goal as Gaborik scored yesterday on Bryz. Just because it trickles in doesn't mean it's a bad goal.

As for the 3rd goal, surely you want your goalie to stop that. But NHL players score from there, and five holes goals are not always bad goals.

"Stellar" would be more appropriate.

Maybe.

I think it is more not dealing well with being hung out to dry all game every game by an unprepared and undisciplined team.
