Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the San Francisco Chronicle,
Nabokov’s playoff numbers are solid, but in comparison with his contemporaries, not spectacular. Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo and Anaheim’s Jean-Sebastien Giguere have better save percentages, and six of the eight surviving goalies (Luongo, Giguere, Detroit’s Dominik Hasek, the New York Rangers’ Henrik Lundqvist, Buffalo’s Ryan Miller and Ray Emery of Ottawa) have better goals-against averages.
Wilson, awash in bias, endorsed his guy without hesitation.
“I’ve seen some soft goals in some of the other series, but Nabby hasn’t let in a soft goal since the playoffs started,” he said. “He’s not just making saves, he isn’t making any mistakes. I don’t think he’s had to steal a game for us, but he’s been error-free.”
more... I normally do not outwardly cheer for the Wings, but since they are my home team and Wilson did bring it up, tonight is the night for a few of those “soft” goals.
