Finding games a little slow this season?
You’re not alone.
There were 18 shut-outs in the season’s first 71 games (second item).
Things are pretty crazy. Detroit went crazy against Montreal backup goalie Mathieu Garon Monday night and couldn’t crack him. Sure, there was a huge bad luck element for Detroit, but still. They had nothing to shoot at. Although, to be fair, when Brett Hull had the empty net to shoot at, that didn’t go so well.
