Interesting from Puck Daddy on a topic that we talk about a lot. "When a team starts to press for goals, they press for shots. Players seem to start playing to have an excuse to fall back on -- "yeah, well, we totally outshot them." And in turn, Halak ends up facing a team of human pitching machines. He's able to stay in the game and keep focus, because he knows he's going to get a lot of shots. And better still, he knows he's going to see a bundle from parts of the ice that opponents have no hope of scoring from. . . . . Inversely, the goalie at the other end not getting shots forgets what the damn puck feels like on his pads. And hockey, more than any other sport, has cruel, cruel gods, partly because of that."
