why does this have anything to do with anything?

if the 'hot hand' were a real thing, wouldn't we see much wider divisions in GAA/SV% than we do? pretty sure that a goalie coming off a shutout does just as well as a goalie not coming off a shutout.


Confidence and lack-of-confidence. One shutout happens all the time. Two shutouts is pretty rare. Three shutouts in a row? The goalie feels like he is in the zone, and the opposing team (ie, us) knows perfectly well that this guy hasn't allowed a goal in over 180 minutes of hockey. It gets into the goalie's head and it sure as hell gets into our heads.

All I'm saying is I'd much rather not have those factors influence this game.

JA byłby bardzo podobny wobec zobaczyć ten Diabły hokej drużyna zabezpieczyć pewien zwycięstwo dziś wieczorem w stosunku do ten Los Anioły Królowie. JA byłby także podobny wobec mieć płeć rezygnować Jenifer Miłość Rąbanie , oprócz pewien Diabły zyskać jest liczniejszy prawdopodobny.

There is psychology to sports. I think a lot of players on the Devils would rather face a back-up than a guy coming off 3 straight shutouts. And it has nothing to do with save percentages or GAA's and everything to do with players knowing a hot goalie is tough to beat, which as a couple of other people said, lowers confidence.

awesome, so per TG there's a chance that Fraser is playing LW if Sykora cant play

Why can't they get a youngster from the AHL instead of a stupidity like this?????

Kinda short notice to fly someone from Albany to L.A. In situations like this, you work with what you've got. And all we've got is Fraser. Ugh.

Yeah, but the Devils have had a long-time habit of making backups look like All-Stars.
