The second and third goals were shot you just have to stop. It doesn't matter if you make 37 saves, a bad goal is a bad goal. Lundqvist has struggled with that this year. He can make an amazing save one minute and then give up a goal that looks way beneath him. To be honest with you, this year he resembles less the goalie I saw last year and more of what I saw out of and didn't like about Tom Barasso for 15 years.
It's much easier to blame everything on the goalie for the loss huh?
We're a high scoring team and managed to score the massive amount of 2 goals. We let up 41 shots, Jagr made a boneheaded play at the end of the game, Nylander made a boneheaded play, Ward had 4 penalties and we had 10 penalties as a total. But yeah, it's all Lundqvist's fault for not seeing through 4 people and letting in 2 cannons on the PP. Lecavalier has scored 33 times this season and is tied with Ovechkin at 1st place in the league. Stupid goalies, why don't they just save the puck instead?
This loss is a team effort and a damn unnecessary one. We practically gave this one away by dumb, individual mistakes and I'm not talking about Lundqvist. He did what he should to give this team a chance for winning.
