Did Tony Esposito have some poor playoff performances? Absolutely.
But he does not deserve all the blame for the streak. He deserves less blame than the skaters, particularly those expected to produce offensively.
Because they clearly did not perform at the same level as they did in the regular season, they very clearly stepped down.
Apply the same reasoning to Bill Durnan and we are getting somewhere.
