So since the lockout these are the goals per game stats
And this year 5.32 so far. Since about Its weird looking at the dead puck era which was a little bit lower but there was more variance and fluctuation compared to the last 4 years. Also with Babcock's talk about increasing goal size due to goalie size I wanted to get your guys take on the issue since being fans of the Devils we're used to traditionally defensive hockey.
I'm all for doing something in order to make goalies work for saves more. Maybe its because I have been watching too many games where us as a team (or us getting bailed out the other way) where you outshoot the other team but there aren't any memorable saves yet a lucky bounce or three deflections and two screens are the only way to beat a goalie but I hate those games. Those are games that make me question why I watch hockey. It just feels like hitting your head against a wall without something spectacular going on the other end.
