It isn't a personel issue. It really comes down to confidense in the goalie to make that save and this year it is lacking in a big way. It causes players to play tight and lately with the exceptiong of the last two games, we have played from behind a bit. Which causes players to try and make things happen or take the extra unnecessary risk/pass. We also have at times been quilty of cuties plays and passes that have led to turn overs and scoring chances.
But, The Blues' poorer defence, getting caught up ice and out of position has been giving up many more 2 on 1s and breakaways resulting in easy scoring chances that no goalie can stop. It's not just the goalies' fault. The defence (forwards too) is playing poorly
