Otherwise, our defense has obviously regressed since then with no Pronger and an aging Timonen.
Our goalie situation.. is better.. but knowing Bryz you can't expect consistency. We got lucky then with Leighton playing exceptionally against Montreal and Boston. But then we all know what happened in game 6. I wouldn't put a goal like Kane's OT winner past Bryz, he lets in those deflating, soft goals.
Bryz would have saved Kane's shot......but let out a rebound to the middle of the slot where a blackhawk would have put it past bryzgolav's pathetic poke check for the GWG
