True, but we only have one NHL goalie right now. And really, Ellis, Mason, and Lindback have never been more than backups. All of Bishop, Anderson, and Lehner are starting material.
Hey all, Sens fan here.
If you'd told me a few years ago that last year we would have 3 quality goalies, let alone 3 quality STARTERS, I would have thought you nuts. Its nice to finally have some stability in net. And I hope Rinne comes back soon for you guys (not sure what his injury sitch is), he is all-world!
Before tonight, it was a 26.19% success rate for 2013-14. Slightly higher than most team PP% but a rare event that with a relatively low success rate. Nystrom's earlier success pretty much stacked the odds against the Preds converting again any time soon. We're now 1 for 2 converting and opposing shooters are 0 for 2 against the Preds.
It isn't just the bad reversal by Ekholm. We're making weak, blind passes during attempts to break up rushes as well. Get puck on stick, don't look, pass it somewhere, hope it goes well ... all great until it ends up on the opposition's stick for a chance which keeps happening.
