So, Ray Emery gets hurt early in the first period last night after saving only 1 shot.

In comes Martin Gerber, who proceeds to make 31 saves as Ottawa wins 6-0. He ends up being one of the 3 stars in the game.

In the stats book, however, Emery gets the Win. Neither of them gets a shutout.

STUPID!!

*** Note: I have Gerber in the hockey pool and expected a win and shutout based on his performance. All I got was a 1.000 save percentage bump.

The Win rule kinda makes sense, though in this case it's silly.
The goalie that's playing when the team scores the winning goal gets the win. If you don't do that you can rotate goalies during the game and both pick up wins.

But technically, shouldn't Emery have gotten the shut-out too? He did have a 100% sp.
(Probably some rule about having to have stopped at least X shots. At which point it owuld make sense for Gerber to get the s.o...and then you can argue about the W too/again)




*sigh* Why bother?

I don't follow Hockey much (I even started a thread back in the day to figure out what +/- was), but don't they have a Save stat, like baseball?

If Emery gets hurt at 1-0, give him the win and Gerber the save. At the very least, give them each half a shut-out. Gerber deserves AT LEAST that much.

A save is successfully stopping a shot on goal. There are many saves in a game, but not in the way you're thinking of.

Who are Dave Hodge and Brian MacFarlane? Btw, if I'm not mistaken I think MacLean will be on Open Mike tonight.
