But it's almost like they forgot what All-Star caliber goaltending looks like every night and what it can mean to your team.
That "highlight of the night" goal that Theodore let in the other night is a prime example. All he had to do was stand his ground, the shooter had no time, yet he does some kind of barrell roll and gets beat low. That would have created a **** storm in Vancouver if Luongo or Schneider had ended a game like that. Yet Florida fans seem content.
Again, not a jab, just an observation.
I've tried to watch Florida games this year, and its really hard.
The games aren't close, and they're just awful. With free center ice, there is always a better game on.
