These last 2 starts has given me hope that Enroth at least belongs in this league.

Rob Ray syndrome. Everything is a "good effort".

Though to be fair, the defense was pretty damn good in the 3rd, and many of the shots were from bad angles. They made it pretty easy for Enroth, though Enroth himself made several nice saves.

Also it was a -3- on 1.
It was a 3-on-1 which devloved to a 2-on-1 because the trailer didn't keep up with play (although I may be wrong). I have no problem with the shot (Staff more dangerous than Pomm's patented sweater-crester), and yes, Henrik lost it briefly, but Staff could have shot more to Henrik's right so the rebound (if there was one) kicked out to the other wing.

No problem with the shot either...a pass probably doesn't get through. Could the shot have been better? Sure...but a shot is never a bad play in that situation.

Eh, I was pretty disappointed in their defensive play for most of the first. Lots of sloppy or lazy clear attempts, poor support. They cleaned it up as the game went on though.
