As well, I'm not sure that a rookie with 8 games of NHL experience letting in 4 goals is evidence that Salo's not doing anything wrong. I think Ty Conklin gets a little more slack than Tommy Salo.

Conklin faced 36 shots tonight...& 2 of the goals he let in were deflections right in front of the net which, in all honesty as a goalie, you have very little if any chance at all on....the last goal by Holik, was a good move by Holik, it was a nice back-hander just above Conklin's pad, and right under his blocker, well placed shot by Holik..

Salo allowed 3 goals on 8 shots against Toronto..big difference.
