You can kind of lay similar blame at his feet for game 2. If he just makes one save on the late-game powerplays, it goes to OT and maybe the Sharks pull one out.
Don't get me wrong, no blame goes to him in the other two losses, and he was dynamite in the Sharks's wins.
Sorry but no, you have to score to win. The difference in wins and losses wasn't the goalie, it was the skaters.
