He has given up 8 goals and had the B's have hit iron six times in two games (beat 14 times). He could very easily pitch back to back shutouts again in this series, but he still got beat 14 times in two games. That can't happen.

what's great is he almost always comes out of it and goes back to being "Hank". In a seven game series the damage might already be done though.

BTW, as we talk about stats and which players "raise" their game in the playoffs, I wonder how many people know that Derek jeter is a better regular season hitter than post season hitter. You'd think he hits about .500 in post season the way he is revered by the media.

Perception is not always reality
This is especially so when you micromanage a sample size and start making things up.

...like how you decided that shots hitting a goal post count as beating the goalie.
