I just noticed more block shots in the 3rd than ive seen in a long time. That aside, clemmer made 15 of his own. good on him.
That seems like perception, though.
On most teams, the starter has a better record than the backup. It's just odd that we perform like a playoff team with backups in net, yet we're mediocre at best when we put our starters in. And it's dating back to six years now, which isn't a small sample. It seems like it's only something that has happened to this franchise.
As Laus said, most successful teams right now have a starter and a successful record with that starter in net.
