He played a solid game in net, and gave Pittsburgh a chance to win the game, which is what he's been asked of this season. More often that not, he's delivered and followed through with that .

Take a look at these from tonights game:

Not only are there some really good scrambling saves there, but take a look at his defense. He has to put up with this every damned night he's in net.

Christ, what did you people expect from him this year? 15 shutouts?
