The first goal, fine he's screened but rather than stay at the top of the crease and in the middle of the net, he completely gambles and guesses the wrong way. The second goal is borderline comical. Why? Why would you not stick out your pad in that instance rather than dragging your trapper on the ice?
His head is never in the game for 60 minutes and there is no argument that tonight, we won despite his piss poor play.
First goal was a clear screen and Emelin's shot found the far corner. That gets scored on pretty much every goaltender in the league.
Second goal was on an odd-man break and was a pass-pass-shoot play. An athletic goaltender (Quick, Kiprusoff, for example) would have led with the pad and made the save. Bryzgalov relies more on positioning and made an awkward glove stab at a difficult play. So-so in the grand scheme of things.
Third goal was dumb.
