from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
Halak, who is 1-4 with a 3.47 goals-against average and an .835 save-percentage, hasn’t said much about his dissappointing start this season, but opened up a bit today after the Blues’ morning practice at Rogers Arena.
“Obviously, it’s not the start that I was hoping for, but here we are,” Halak said. “I’ve played five games and I’m 1-4. Obviously I need to work on my game. But it’s a long season. It’s only October. We’ve got so many games coming up. You just need to stay positive and work hard in practice.
“It’s always better to have a slow start than a slow finish. It’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon. We played 82 games. Good thing we don’t play 10 games a season.”
Asked if he could pinpoint his own troubles, Halak said: “If I knew the answer, I would be 4-1, not 1-4, so we’ll see. Like I said, just stay positive, work hard in practice and try to have fun out there. I’m not panicking. We need two goalies and it’s always good when you have two goalies that can play.”
