Bernier, Quick, whoever, needs to get it together and start stopping some pucks. Our save percentage is abysmal and that's unacceptable when we're allowing so few shots in the first place.

the defensive lapses are more to blame for this imo. the DAL game was ridiculous. how the hell does a team allow Jagr to go unmarked down the backside is beyond me? there has been a lot of that this season. im sticking with the Greene and Mitchell absence as the primary reason. new pairings, lack of experience, lack of toughness in front of the net are all evident. we have to remain patient with these guys. they have to learn one another's tendencies and for some just gaining NHL experience
