And the stats thing is why stats in hockey never tell the full story.
Rinne's game against St Louis is indefensible. Three goals on six shots faced, allowing his team to get down by three less than ten minutes into the season. Rinne didn't give up the soft goal on misreading the puck like Hutton's first ... the 2nd and 3rd goals Hutton allowed are a wash with the ones Rinne allowed in the season opener (although Sobotka did pretty much own both Klein and Rinne on his goal). Rinne was good the first period and a half against Toronto, then gave up four goals on seventeen shots down the stretch .... one directly resulting from him misplaying the puck. Maybe one year people will be honest and say a star had a game where they just sucked ... this doesn't seem to be it.
