Totally forgot about the game today, looks like Armia and Salomaki combined for 7 points! Woohoo!

And that's just it (the bolded). There was Pogge in 2006 and Price in 2007, but those were absolutely dominant goaltending performances from start to finish. Every year since then, they've given both tenders a chance. When I heard Subban would start vs. Germany, I thought for sure Binnington would start vs. Slovakia, and that they'd ride the hot goalie from that point onward.
