This team is struggling because the defense in atrocious, and Mason isn't playing at a level to constantly bail them out anymore. Actually, the defense is playing even worse than it was last year around this time. All three goals against could have been much easier plays on Mason if the defense had done their jobs.
Mason made some great stops last night too. It's a unsustainable strategy to depend on a goalie to make all the tough stops. When he doesnt, he gets blamed around here for being bad. none of the goals were on him. goalies shouldn't give up softies, anything else is a bonus. The 5 guys in front of him get paid to do a job too.
