Seriously, outplayed?

I'll repeat the stats again, but if you think we're throwing nearly as many chances at Anderson you're HIGH. Anderson hasn't been forced to make nearly the amount or quality of saves Lundqvist has (such as Lundqvist preserving the SO with tremendous saves so his team could win 1-0). If we win the other night in OT or score a third goal in regulation, this thread doesn't exist. No chance.

1.66 Goals against. That's 1.66 goals allowed per 60 minutes of hockey.
.940 Save Percentage. That's 94% of all shots against are stopped.
1 Shutout. In a game in which his team only gave him one goal of support no less, so there was NO margin for error.

The guy has been unreal. If you've watched this series the LAST person on this team who has to answer to anybody is Lundqvist. It's like one game (in which he wasn't even bad) erases everyone's memory of the game before it and the rest of the series.

And by the way, that Turris shot was a snipe, with a screen, off a broken play. Look at the Semin goal against Thomas tonight that allowed Washington to tie Boston (the defending champs) up 2-2. Sick shot. It happens.
