Though Theodore is being paid like a No. 1 goalie, he has not always played like one. In 13 games, he is 5-6-1 with a 3.18 goals-against average and a .898 saves percentage. Budaj is 4-3-1 with a 2.03 GAA and a .929 saves percentage. One of his losses came in relief after Theodore allowed five goals in the first two periods of an eventual 6-5 loss against the Los Angeles Kings. "Every year is different. I don't try to look at the similarities (to 2005-06) or try to see what's going to happen next," said Budaj, whose GAA ranks third in the NHL. "Right now, coach and the staff have trust in me . . . and I'm very happy I could show them I'm worth the trust. Hopefully, they're going to trust me more and I keep playing as many games as possible."more
