That 4th goal is exactly the kind of goal you can't let in if you're battling hard to get back in a game. And he was lucky at least two others just like it didn't end up in the net.

Add to that, good goalies bail out their defense sometimes even when they get hung out to dry.

But my original point was, we currently have average goaltending at best. Last nights effort at a comeback, while admirable, is in the big picture meaningless unless we can play the next 15 periods just like we played the third last night.

If that comeback the fell short inspires this team to not let itself get in a hole like that again, then it was great even if we got no points. But if we come out and give up two or three in the first period again next game then it was all just a futile bit of stat padding
