And that is without getting into the fact that there were three one goal losses.
And once again, I agree that improved play by Leighton would have helped. I have never once said it wouldn't have. I don't know why you keep acting like I am saying goaltending was not an issue. It absolutely was. But there were other issues. It isn't a hard concept. But I guess you are right, as usual, because you say so. Richards, Carter, and Gagne's performances were fine and improved play from them would not have had the same impact on the series.
It's like you have conveniently forgot how they totally shutdown the Toews line. Those two lines absolutely negated each other. They did what they had to do to win, but our 3rd pairing playing a combined 5 minutes a night, and the absolute ****show in net lost the series
