numbers for long stretches or you play inconsistant for a good stretch. Which Bryzgalov has since the beginning of Feb.
But if you want to blame the team for his play, then we can say the team was the reason he was near .920 in January. Cant have it both ways.
I don't know how one blames the team. It doesn't add up; logically he'd do his best while the team is best, if he depends on them that much. However, he did his best when they were downright terrible and is doing worse now that they're better. I don't see how that works out.
It's more likely he's A) exhausted from the hard schedule B) simply an average goalie, or C) a combination of the two.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
