from Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune,
With a new year arriving, the Lightning hope it translates to Roloson’s game returning.
“I’ve seen it in the past, you are riding one goaltender and then you start riding the other goaltender, so hopefully that’s what we’ll be seeing,’’ Tampa Bay head coach Guy Boucher said.
The turnaround will have to be dramatic. After joining Tampa Bay last season in a New Year’s Day trade from the New York Islanders, Roloson allowed four or more goals 10 times in 34 appearances last season, nearly 30 percent of his games. In 16 starts this season, he allowed four or more goals 10 times, or 62.5 percent of his games.
In his past seven games — which include a pair of relief appearances — he allowed at least three goals. His 3.81 goals-against average is the worst in the league among goaltenders to start more than three games and his save percentage of .882 ranks 71st out of 75 goaltenders to appear in at least one game.
