Honestly, the way Niittymaki played at the end of the season, I don't have a lot of confidence in either goalie. As others have said, Esche gives up so many big rebounds for my liking. Niittymaki just doesn't seem to have the same level of confidence that he had earlier in the season and during the Olympic run. Perhaps he is fatigued due to how much he has played this season?
How could Nitty be fatigued after not really playing for the past couple weeks?
