Not to take away from Lundqvist. He's certainly not the reason we lost, but that "chance to win every night" he's famous for providing seems to be a slimmer chance than when my man with the undeniably BEST goalie mask is in net, at least right now.

I just feel more confident with him in net, and I think the team feels the same. Like, not only does he keep us in it, but our boys seem to persevere much better, and keep trying to push when we're trailing instead of looking like they've given up.

Bench Pouliot, he comes back flying. Same with Zucc early in the season. Hank looks frustrated, pounding the ice after the last few GA. I don't know that AV's belief is continuing to play Hank is the best way to keep him in/return him to form, but it seems that way, despite being shown that sometimes a game off is exactly what a player needs to push him to the next level.
I don't think you watched the same game everyone else did. Hank seemed like the only ranger on the ice most of the night. Pouliot played a decent game too. Nothing worth benching him for at all.
