You think he outplayed Rask? Debatable. Rask definitely was the busier goalie with higher quality scoring chances. Jimmy still let in his signature back breaking goal but the team responded. Always an uphill battle with jimmy in net
How was it a back-breaking goal? It happened in the first period of a scoreless game. Back-breaking would imply the Wings couldn't recover from it, which they clearly did. And I would contend that wasn't even a goal that was Jimmy's fault anyways. Jimmy was good in the third period against Boston and it gets overlooked because he didn't blow the lead and people couldn't jump all over him for it.
