Brust is a little more crazy with the puck and finds himself out of position quite a bit, he gets a lot of good bounces with pucks I would say, he is lucky to not have a few more GA. If he played in the NHL the times he gets out of position would see way more consequences then he does get in the AHL. Those spots would get picked off easily by NHL players.
Agreed completely and Brust's numbers are skewed by the shutout streak as well. I think Danny is the better all around goaltender due to the consistency he has shown, Brust however will have higher highs and lower lows.
