Can someone please tell me why the eff my "elite" goalies seem to give up a goal so early on games?   I swear Rask, Rinne and Schneider give up goals in the the first 2 minutes like once a week.   How can a God that doesn't exist, hate me so much?

And of course now they are down 2-0 and Lucic is on the ice for both goals for a big fat -2  FML.

And the bruins have no shots.  What a wash.

Honestly, was surrendering a goal 55 seconds in to a team decimated by injuries really necessary?   I don't need a coronary watching hockey!

FUM,

This happens to everyone.

A goalie is not judged by how many seconds it takes to let in a goal. That's why we have save percentage and GAA - to help you evaluate a goalie by goalie skills. Goalies are absolutely dependent on their teams for good performance.

Often goals are not the fault of the goaltender. Even the ones you see within 55 seconds of the puck drop.

When Rinne let's in 4 goals on 10 shots one night, you continue starting him. He gets the benefit of the doubt because his goalie skills are too high - he has too high a ceiling - to bench regardless of seconds, minutes, or hours without a goal.
