It sure is and Pavelecs job on the team is to make saves. It was another big game and he let in 4 goals, 2 of them weak as hell, and frankly the go ahead go in the 3rd he should have intercepted it or saw it coming. The pass was practically at his skate.
I could forgive all that if he could just make 2 saves in the shoot out but he couldn't even do that. Nabakov stoned us so many times that game I guess I just wanted the same chance from our guy.
My excuse? This is the NHL and scoring chances will be generated by good teams. I'm sick of this endless merry go round ride where people point out Pavelecs bad numbers and people keep trying to justify them. Let me make my comment and point out his bad goals and be on my way with the rest of the post game. I'm really get sick of having to defend my opinion with the same argument every time (an argument backed by cold hard numbers not emotion).
Sorry guys......I hope you guys use that point to get in. End up in 8th and get the Rags out of the playoffs or catch up with the Craps and be 3rd.....Then if the Isles can stay in 6th we will see you.
Anyways good game. You guys and the Oil are my favorite teams in Canada (and soon to be out west)
Islanders have been 8-1-1 their last 10 on the road, you should be very proud of your guys.
All the best from Long Island.
Take a hike! Now with that out my system, I must say I was impressed with the Islanders. They deserved the two points more than the Jets. They could a long way in the playoffs.
