Biron having a better win percentage than Hank is just something the Hank critics from other teams can troll on to say he shouldn't be in Hart consideration because he gives his team less of a chance to win than his backup, which is ludicrous.
I don't know if we win this game with Hank in net, but I'm telling you: that PS doesn't happen if Marty just swallows the puck instead of flubbing it and letting it go. The scramble doesn't happen, no PS is awarded, and the gate doesn't open.
This team is most likely 12-2 with Hank in net. We still would have lost to Washington, that was a terrible game and our offense put up one goal. That said Biron flat out stole that first Winnipeg game and was very good (despite me killing him for the goal) against Buffalo. He had some good games. However lately he's been brutal and he had as bad of a game as I've ever seen a goalie have against Chicago.

Hank had just recently played 3 games in 4 nights or something like that. He was most likely in NEED of rest. So Marty got the start, and was rusty. Big deal. It happens. Are we so desperate for points that this is a federal offense? lol.

Toews goes 5-hole almost every time he is 1 on 1 with goalie (Its his shootout move)

He beats many good goalies with that move ,, It works cause of how quick his release is

It's not just that time. Biron has had problems with his 5-hole many times before. In the SO vs. NJ, Kovy had all the time in the world to shoot it through his 5-hole.

Good luck the rest of the year

Hawks destroyed the morale of the Jackets pretty much today ,,,, Should be nice and easy rebound game for Rangers

Love the Toews goal, flying into the air Orr-style.

And I sure hope they can win against the Jackets, although with our luck, former Ranger Vinny Prospal will score a hat trick.

And Lundqvist has had only a handful of goals beat him 5 hole all season. Besides, that still gives Biron no excuse to not get the idea and be burned TWO more times on the same play. This game should have been at worst 2-0 after 1. While the Rangers have only 1 multi goal comeback this season, that's still no insurmountable lead.
