It's not against the rules to make a save on a goal that isn't your fault if it goes in. That's what the greats do.
We should still win the series, and Hank will hopefully be a big part of that. We can win the Cup too. But he has to stop the shots in overtime and not give us more reasons to describe why a future goal wasn't his fault.
A record also needs to be put into context though. If Henrik had a history of giving up bad goals in overtime it would be one thing, but the goals he's given up have been of a sort that even the best goalies aren't expected to make saves on. And with only one goal scored by the team in front of him in almost 120 minutes of hockey, a losing record isn't all that surprising.
EDIT: Since the start of the 2011 playoffs, Boston is 5-1 in overtime. They've scored also scored 5 goals in 75 minutes. If Henrik had that type of goal support he'd have a much nicer looking record, wouldn't he?
