I love it when the best goalie in the league gets outplayed by scrubs

Hank might have the cup on those teams because he'd be carried offensively. He'd have a cup for the same reason Peyton Manning has a ring. Peyton was carried by the defense in every game during the 2006 playoffs, except for 1 great game against a decimated Pats team. Put Hank on the Pens and they might win a cup because their firepower will cover his choker ass.
Every ****ing year in the playoffs the guy chokes. It's unbelievable. He doesn't suck in every game, but manages to suck at the worst times. I'll leave the migraine year alone. 07, Buffalo. After playing lights out for 3 games, he was mediocre in the decisive game. The Rangers scored 4, too bad our all world goalie gave up 5 (wasn't the worst 5 goals he gave up, but he was mediocre). 08, down 2-0, he's a complete no show against the Pens, we come back from 3-1 down and I believe he gives up 2 more (at least 1, don't remember if goal #5 was an empty netter or not). Game 5 he played well but gave up a savable 5 hole goal in OT to get us eliminated. In 09, he is amazing in the wins, absolutely brutal in the losses. He gave up 5 goals in game 3 and looks bad doing it. Then in a game after one of his best games in his career, we get a chance to eliminate the Caps, he has an AWFUL game. Still remember one goal he gave up between the legs, unscreened at an almost 180 degree angle, even worse than today's 3rd goal. Plays a brutal game 6 and actually plays most of game 7, well. Then he gives up a goal that while not super soft, he should have had, with like 3 minutes left in a tie game. 11, he just had a pretty mediocre playoff all around. The game we blew a 3 goal lead, most of the game he was great, but one of the goals he gave up was brutal, made the save and just let the rebound lay there, that was put in. Last year, he had 2 awful games against the Devils, especially game 5. We almost lost game 5 against the Caps due to a brutal goal. Horrible goals and games at the worst times.
You really need to cool off before posting. This is just a wall of non-sense. Hank was great in the playoffs for us last year.
