from the Chicago Sun-Times,
‘‘He looked so comfortable, so confident,’’ goaltender coach Stephane Waite said of Khabibulin’s last two outings. ‘‘He’s found his comfort zone.’‘
Khabibulin hasn’t been able to explain why, because he has paid the price for both of those hard-earned victories. He experienced dehydration in both and had long intravenous treatments immediately after leaving the ice.
‘‘He lost 12 pounds against Detroit and probably about nine [at Calgary],’’ Savard said. ‘‘Khabby takes a lot of fluids. He has this purple drink he takes between shifts. He’s always been like that. It’s not unusual.’‘
Something is different about Khabibulin’s play, though.
Savard lauded Waite’s work after the Calgary win.
