Regardless of how Neuvirth has played, this offense has been straight up AWFUL. This season is not the goaltenders fault, any of them. Ridiculous statement.
The 15th ranked starter in the NHL has a save percentage of .920.
If the Caps goalies played up to that average this season, we would have allowed 191 goals. Instead, we've given up 219. 28 fewer goals allowed would equal a bunch more wins. We'd be comfortably in first in the SE.
Lots of blame to go around, but the goalies get some of it.
Well people seem to have a problem with the inconsistency in goal for us, but that applies to almost all areas of our game. We rarely put together a full 60 and thats what kills us. We know we have the talent, we just don't utilize it. Some fault does lie on the players but I think it is more on management.
