With Fasth he's shallows up rebounds or least puts them in a better spot allowing the d-men to do their job better. When he handles the puck he actually is able to pass it to his d-men. I think Hiller struggles with that because he catches with his strong hand (writing hand) and essentially handles his stick backwards.

There's no question our D plays a more confident game with Fasth in net.
Definitely. And confidence is a building block of success.
