Because you don't tell a goalie that plays a position that is highly instinctual and rooted in confidence to not do things. You do that and you'll neuter that confidence and thus hinder his performance. You take the good with the bad.

Quick's been the direct cause of as many goals in the playoffs off puck handling mistakes as the greatest puck handling goalie ever on the other team.

It's been a tight series. As much as that goal is Quick's fault, Brodeur gifted us some softies in the first two games as well. And Marty has had all the luck go his way these last two games (how many posts and shanked open nets is it at in the last 6 periods)? The games have all been tight and things are going to go back and forth. Luckily for the Kings, who seem scared to death to lose, basically everything has had to go right for New Jersey these last two games to squeak out wins.
