Felt bad for Lehtonen too. The guy made some truly incredible saves in this game. He was hung out to dry pretty badly by his team IMO.
All the bad passes, turnovers, and inability to get the puck into the offensive zone and cycle it to create shooting lanes is killing them. They either turn the puck over or they just shoot into a wall of humanity. Gotta shoot where they ain't if your gonna score son.
Yeah Lehtonen and Nilstorp have been men alone on an island when they're in there. Something positive, albeit tiny, is that the last two games they have finally held the opposition to less than 30 shots-on-goal. But still the shots they are allowing are quality shots, and there's only so much any goalie can do in those situations. Plus once again those turnovers all too often hang Kari out to dry.
