You're molding the facts to fit your statements. Marty started on March 1st vs. the Isles so Cory could start March 2nd vs. the Sharks. Cory got the home game and the more important game. "Cory suffered a tough loss to the Sharks." Again, mold the facts. Cory allowed 4 goals on 22 shots that game; a save pct. of .818. Cory's previous game, he had a save pct. of .895. Marty posted a .947 in his game vs. the Isles so Pete decided to put him back in the rotation after not playing for a month and only a few games in the month before that (Cory played double in Jan.) Some theory you have here, when Cory doesn't play it's Lou's fault but when only Cory was playing that was Pete's choice.
I digress. So Marty got the next March start on the 4th vs. Detroit. This was an alternation based on Cory's drop in play. Marty was not very good, he put up an .870 vs. the Wings. Cory got the next start on March 7 and proceeded to let in more goals, 7, than Marty did in the Yankee Stadium game, 6. Did Cory get benched like Marty did? Nope. Marty played the next day (obviously) and wasn't great with an .879. However, in his previous 3 games, Cory put up an .803 save pct. So Marty got March 11th in which he put up a .968 save pct. Nonetheless, Cory got the next start. He put up an .810, bringing his post-break four game total to a whopping .804. Still though, Cory gets to play after just 2 starts by Marty because Marty put up a .906 and an .871 in those games. What does Cory do? Puts up an .870, bringing his post-break 5 game total up to a mind-bendingly great .817. Still, the 2 goalies are alternating.
Let's eliminate all of that though. How about the past 4 games? 2 starts for Cory (against the Islanders and Maple Leafs) and he puts up a .930. 2 starts for Marty (against the Rangers and Coyotes) and he puts up a .943. This is not a mystery folks; people are just getting carried away.
Now, trivia question: Did I argue that Marty is the better goalie?
Answer: No. My only point is to address the ridiculous assertions being made here and all over the board.
