The goal is to win, right?
No goaltender is hot. If we made the playoffs as normal, Shesterkin would be the slam dunk choice. Neither goalie has played a competitive game in months. How Shesterkin was playing in March is irrelevant after over 3 months off.
A well rested Henrik, with his playoff pedigree, could do very well in the playoffs this year. Regardless if Shesterkin is the future.
If Quinn was impartial, whoever had the best camp should he starting the first game. Whoever looks most game ready. I don't know if the Islanders game gave any insight into that.
I think Hank looked better than Igor, Igor was flopping around and moving quite frantically, out of position, and looked nowhere near as composed as Hank did. Hank stopped a few unexpected shots off of really quick turnovers and looked very locked in
You seem to watch entirely different games compared to the rest of us.Igor was flopping around frantically?lol
I wouldnt go as far as saying Shesty was "flopping" around but Hank had the better outing compared to what Shesty had to face during the 1st half of the game.
Hank has been really great
Practically humiliated in his final playoff-game - or is he going to be back tomorrow?
Criticizing Lundqvist at this point is like smacking your 15 year old dog on the nose for making a mess on the carpet. He's 38, and he's starting because the #1 is injured. Let it be.
First goal was bad. Second would have been scored on almost anyone imo, just a very good shot in a very difficult area for a goalie. Third was borderline, could have been prevented with more patience probably but it was a messy breakdown all around. Fourth was a big lateral move and a very hard shot, maybe Igor would have stopped it because he’s particularly good at that movement but it wasn’t a bad goal by any means.
Wouldn’t say he was humiliated. Team was outplayed all over and he let in a terrible goal to start
Take that 15 year old dog for a long run b/c he used to be a puppy too. The thread and point has been made for over a year.
And the owner can't realize that it's time to say goodbye... The owner still wants this dog to participate in another exhibition...
It’s a shame it has to end this way
The hank shaming is completely shattering my heart.
At least he isn't playing in an alumni game for the St Louis Blues before retiring
Some here would honestly be completely happy to see that though unfortunately.
hank hasn't been great, but the whole team has been a dumpster fire other then Kakko
the short side was soft but I don't think the rest were his fault. he was good these two games the rest of the team was shit. doesn't deserve to go out like this.
i am hoping geo gets traded this summer and we have a hank farewell tour next year - he still has the goods. shesty is the future and should start tomorrow if he really is not injured.
two of the goals today were soft. The short side and right over his shoulder (he missed it lol)
No screen or deflection and from the top of the circle isn’t a “bad goal by any means” lol. Yeah, it wasn’t bad, it was awful.
It was right over his blocker shoulder - not an easy stop at all.
Its 1 he needs to make
your excuses are embarrassing. There was no screen and no deflection. The post game hammered him too. That’s no different than a 3rd baseman missing a line drive. Hank whiffed.
Obviously you've never played either position or you'd know how false this is.
Tell Valiquette who played goalie and disgarees with you while you obviously never a goalie either (or a bad one who bought into the excuses)
As someone who has played goalie, that’s a tougher shot to save than you’re making it out.
That shot would have beaten most goalies imo. It was an absolute f***ing bomb from a very good shooter.
The rule of thumb is if we can see it, we should save it. I watched the replay of that goal probably 20 times in various speeds. The puck was 100% knuckling which makes it extremely difficult to track, especially when it has the speed and velocity that it had.
Pay attention to the puck in this replay at the 30 second mark. It’s just a wicked freaking rotation.
For those saying Hank dropped down before the shot was taken — try opening your eyes, or watching replays.
Again, I think most people that played goalie would agree we should save what we can see. But some shots are almost impossible to save.
Watch the replay in different angles. Hank was tracking that well until it started knuckling. From when that puck left Svech’s stick to when it was in the back of the net was literally, a blink of the eye.
Sometimes you just have to give the shooter credit, instead of blame the goalie.
