Osgood’s Numbers Don’t Lie

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

He is hockey’s Indian rubber lightning rod, so used to the criticism that he can wrap it in stats and send it flying back at you twice as fast.

Sure, Osgood stunk in Calgary Monday night, letting in three softies before getting the hook. But if you want to say that makes him suspect for the playoffs, you’d better check your numbers, pal.

“Last year I had a 1.55 (GAA) and a .930 saves percentage in the playoffs. That’s not a fluke. There is a reason why that happens,” the beleaguered Detroit goaltender said Tuesday morning in Edmonton, where he was — by some seven or eight minutes — the last Red Wing off the ice after an optional morning skate.
