Alright, it's starting to get a bit nutty with the bi-polar opinions on Hank.

Hank has not had this kind of defense, in terms of being bad, in a long time. It is an adjustment to him. The fact he has a .909 SV% based on shot quality has been good. Last night, I cannot blame for the 3 goals scored. He did make some big saves as well. When he stops those, he is on his game. Right now, he is struggling. The team is poor in front of him. The Streak Of 2 Goals Or Less In November was Strong play and Strong Goaltending. I find we should look at the guys who are not doing their job in front of Hank. How about the win over Dallas? Vintage Hank. Too many times has the team hung him out to dry.
Talbot shouldnt be in the same sentence as Hank to be honest. I'm so sick of hearing about Talbot and how his numbers are better. Teams tighten up when backups play so i think that is a big reason for Talbots success, and he has made some great saves too. The team seems alot more loose in front of Hank and alot more willing to leave him out to dry. Defense hasnt been good which leads to more chances which leads to more goals. Hank hasnt been his usual self but neither has the D. Maybe its time for AV to play to his teams strength. Tough defense and dirty work in the corners.
