yep and cannot ever make that one save they need at the right moment. D is struggling, but our goaltending is downright abysmal...
How can you put up stats like those and never make a clutch save? The goalie is struggling now and defense is still atrocious, just like last season. Except Jimmy hasn't been able to bail them out as often.
2.13 GAA, .923 save percentage last regular season. Easily the biggest reason the Red Wings made the playoffs at all. Followed that up with a 2.44 GAA and .924 save percentage against the top two seeds in the West. Mind you, all in front of a makeshift defense.
So nothing, if you only want to look at Jimmy's struggles this season like he has never bailed the Red Wings out before or proven his worth.
This has shutout written all over it again at MSG. Just not generating any real sustained pressure on Lundqvist. Tough circumstances with the schedule and start time, but hopefully they can dig deep and steal a win.
His value is so low, the return would be minimal. I would rather see Weiss get healthy and contribute like he has before in his career. I think he deserves more of a chance here until the contract is declared an overwhelming failure.
Monster has to start tomorrow. The team just wins with him in net and that's more important than anything right now. Jimmy isn't getting the job done the past two games and I don't fault him entirely, but that record is pathetic looking.
They could easily be 4-0 out of the break and those three lost points are massive. The script of the season is injuries and blown leads.
