He did pretty much save it by himself. Boucher was god awful till Leighton took over. Leighton stood on his head for around his first 15-20 starts after Boucher got injured.
If goal scoring was such a problem, how did they go 12-4-1 in Leightons first 17 starts when Boucher got injured? We were going nowhere fast, probably miss the playoffs without that run.
Yeah, the goalie had nothing to do with it.
