For me stealing a game is just playing above your head to win a game that either a.) shouldn't have been won by your team (your lone definition) or b.) playing well enough to win a close game. Vokoun was the losing goaltender and he had a .953 sv% tonight...Anderson had a .980...in my eyes both of those are good enough to 'steal' a game.

Mind you I'm a Penguins fan and my definition of what constitutes being a good goalie may be skewed...but any time your goalie makes 49 saves out of 50 I'd say he shouldered more than his load in earning a victory.


Well, agree to disagree then.
