go back and look how many games we have been down 3,4 nothing before the middle of the second. It is beyond deflating when the goaltending lets you down. or blows a lead with soft goals?

Our O is no weaker then last year where one line carries us for the most part; our D is somewhat weaker for sure. However, had goaltending stepped up we likely would be in playoff bubble mode, not tank mode.

Many said before the season started to rely on an aging solid goalie in his last yr and an aging lifetime backup was a huge risk, rather than playing the up and coming star. It wasn't rocket science to note that.

And the goaltending is the most glaring difference than last yr.

That was Erick's point and it was a good one.
