A goalie is kind of like a QB in football. Generally, as he goes so does the team. If he lets in a questionable goal, it's natural that the team loses confidence in him and starts gripping their sticks tight. It has happened all too often with him.
AGAIN, the 3rd period meltdowns are a team problem but he's a part of that problem also. They are a bunch of mental midgets who get easily frazzled.
Yes the team is not yet good enough in close games.
