Cory definitely does suck in the shootouts. I don't understand why he's so bad, but he is. He also stopped one of the Isles on a breakaway during the game (was that also Nielsen?), so I am not sure why breakaways in an "official" competition are any different and harder for him.
I say we just bring up Boucher for the next game and hope it goes to a shootout so that he can score again. Maybe that's the only way we'll end this curse. Missing out on a crucial 2nd point and putting us 5pts out of a spot instead of 4 could very well be the reason we don't make it. We have to pray Detroit loses to Tampa tomorrow (both teams on back to back games) and then we BETTER beat Florida on Monday.
