Niemi is about as good on the first save as any other goalie. Its the second save where his game declines. He loses his balance and his recovery is awful. For Niemi to succeed the blue line needs to be able to box out opposing forwards and in general keep them away from Niemi. Murray can accomplish this. I believe Robinson has concluded this and this is why Murray is getting so much pk time.
