Ding ding ding

Every game I'm hearing "that wasn't on him. You can't expect a goalie to stop that"

Yes, he's not letting in a bunch of Fleury-esque goals, but he's also not making as many outstanding saves as he should. Top goalies (Rask, Miller, Lundqvist not this year) don't just make routine saves, they make saves that nobody else does. That's what Lundqvist has anyways done, and he's not doing it this year.

"You can't expect him to play good of the team in front of him is playing bad"
Yes, I can. This guy dragged a team who's leading scorer was Dubinsky into the playoffs. He's capable of much more than he's showing right now
