Yet, they're 24th in goals against per game. Considering the goaltender has a sub-900 save percentage, that makes sense. It's more an indictment of Bryz than it is the defense.
If Bryz were facing the 33.6 shots per game Edmonton's goalies average, his GAA would be 3.53 GAA, compared to his current 2.79. It's generally agreed upon by all the hockey brains that SV% is the stat most owned by the goalie, and that's the number you get if you apply his save percentage.
get outa here with ur crazy FACTS...
dont u know, its not the Bryz' fault.. every puck from every angle/distance is unstoppable..
weird how other goalies stop em thou.. hmmmm...
