Actually, no. Quick's was worse. He had track of the puck, Salo didn't, he lost it in the dark stands. Nabokov almost did the exact same Salo did, in the same tournament, he also lost the puck because of the again very dark stands. That arena was terrible. Nabokov had the fortune of the puck missing the net with inches, while Salo wasn't as fortunate.

Salo didn't lose his confidence because of the goal, he lost it because of the beheading of him in the Swedish media and that they made him the sole scapegoat for an entire underperforming team.
