If you have an unproven goalie, no playoff series wins, and a softie goes in...the immediate reaction is "Here we go again". I'm not saying it's the right way to react but that is how players have reacted during my 45 years in the game.
Very similar to a shaky closer in baseball. Not going anywhere with that either.
comparing baseball to hockey? baseball is the least fluid and most individual "team" sport there is. pitching is absolutely nothing like being a goalie. if a team can't mentally overcome a flukey goal they aren't going far anyway. "momentum" is only a factor for weakwilled teams who let it become one. that's exactly the kind of team the hawks were last year, this year they haven't been.
