The problem is we don't have a tender who can hold a team scoreless for 2+ periods reliably to allow the comeback. Even if Rinne had given up all three first period goals, once the team got going in front of him I feel pretty confident he could have held them off the rest of the game and given the guys a chance to tie it up
Even with Peks in net, after giving up three bad goals because of TEAM failures early the odds are slim that any goalie is going to hold the opposition to nothing. The TEAM put itself in a position where they needed perfection between the pipes for the last 48 minutes which is unrealistic. He lets in one bad goal, it's all his fault while the TEAM repeatedly failed in the defensive end resulting in far more than one goal.
