You can't play that game. If Vigier doens't score, who's to say Legwand isn't knocked out with a blown knee? So many different things happen because of certain events. You can't say, oh Vokie stops Vigier and we don't need to worry about the empty net. I could just as easily say, if Hamhuis doesn't bail, we don't have to worry about the EN? Neither works because goals aren't scored in a vacuum. A goal or no goal sets off a chain of events that would likely never have happened if the opposite had occured. If Vokoun gives up 1 bad goal but the defense has two costly errors that force the issue, I don't see how you can't level blame on atleast both.
And I agree with the rebounds. Vokoun is a shell of last year. He's playing a very unorthodoxed style. Sometimes, he goes down. Sometimes, he stays up. It's like he's Chechmanek one shot, and Roy the next. And his puck play has been pathetic. He needs to be smarter and cover more often.
