A good confident puck handling goalie like Roli results in likely 5-10 less shots a game. Why? because its like having another skater back there. A few times a game Roli is clearing puck, several times he's moving puck to a PMD, and often he's got rebound control or tying up loose situations so they don't become 3-4 shot close in cluster****s which Dubs is susceptible to.
A goalie can, and does, play some part in how many total shots they are seeing. A goalie like Roli brilliantly supported MINIMIZING how much the puck stayed in his own end. Dubnyk is abysmal at puck management of any kind.
