Interesting... both LA goalies do a very good job keeping rebounds out of harm's way.

detractors of both goalies will be saying they need to stop letting in softies, though.

We have two good young goalies. Has that ever happened before?

Yep, a combo of both.

Bernier started out a little shaky in this regard, but as the season went on both he and Quick turned into vacuums. Positionally our D in front of the net is first class, and they are rarely on the wrong side of the player when the occasional rebound does come out.

There's a lot of times when other teams are cycling in our zone that I don't even get worried. The center of the ice is almost always clear and angled shots are taken care of. Contrast that to the last decade since Potvin when guys like Cloutier, Cechmanek, Labarbara, and Garon nearly resulted in stress-related therapy bills.

I guess you could argue that we have had them throughout our existence but the D was lacking and have an argument but in my opinion we have never had two goalie's of such high caliber talent on the team at the same time.

... Actually, I tend to give the lion's share of credit to the Kings' defense for getting to rebounds and clearing them away. It's pretty telling that both Kings' goalies are right at the top of the list - that tells me all I need to know about the guys in front of them.

This. Or rather, the Kings' forwards. There's usually a tracking forward ready to take out the garbage before it turns into a shot on goal, let along a scoring chance for the other team.

Pretty cool research. It would be cool to see this taken further. I wonder if Murray has shown this to the team yet. haha.

Most coaches will say that the first save is on the goalie and the rebounds are on the defense. I tend to agree.

I would like to see the Ducks stats on rebound goals.
