Marty's given up 5 goals in his past two games
What more does Corey have to do be be considered the hot hand or on a run?
I don't see Cory in terms of a "hot hand" or "going on a run", I think he's our constant right now, and for the future. You can just see in his his technique night-in and night-out that he's always ready to play. His style and technique is so solid and sound, it's unbelievable, textbook model-goalie of this era. Short of the Senators game, he really doesn't put in any subpar performances. He's only 27 and possibly not even hitting his prime YET! He's absolutely the better of the two goalies, that's without a doubt.
Marty's hot right now too, and the team is winning with him in the net. He's at the stage of his career where the level of play and energy he's been showing us will absolutely start to fade, maybe by Christmas, maybe by the Yankee Stadium game, nobody knows. But while we're winning, and while he's playing games the way he has (and keeping us in the games vs. Anaheim and San Jose in dramatic vintage-Marty fashion), you keep the face of the franchise in.
When the time comes (and it will), and Marty has a few bad games, Cory's such a constant high-end goaltender that he'd be able to come in right where he left off. You can't say the same about Marty, so you give him most of the starts for now. Just my opinion...
