By popular demand Alex Edler makes the studs list! Last night he scored a goal and added two power-play assists to push his season totals to 12 points in 12 games. He's doing a good job filling in the void left by Christian Ehrhoff.
Luongo doesn't suck
Sure enough, October is done and Luongo kicks off his "real season" with a big win. He had 28 saves on 29 shots. It's nice to see a "9" in front of his save percentage rather than a "7". Even with his struggles, nobody can argue that his situation is ideal to pick up high win totals. Now let's see the peripheral stats catch up.
Kiprusoff chased after two
Heading into his duel with Luongo it was Kipper who had the sparkling numbers while his counterpart was struggling. But on this night it was Kipper getting shelled for five goals on 18 shots through two periods. The scoring chances were of high quality but he still leaves his poolies with a big fat "L" along with an ugly .722 save percentage and a GAA around 7.50.
If you look at my sig you'll see that I own Luongo in the UHL. I catch a lot of crap for that and for 59 minutes it looked like I would be able to throw all that crap back at my adversaries. With 32 seconds left Alex Tanguay broke Luongo's shutout bid. I like the win and the save percentage but a shutout could have gone a long way towards helping his poolies. This makes me depressed. Can we just go back to talking about Brandi?
