There was a lot of scoring in the game, and the shootout was so nervewracking! I hate shootouts! It didn't start out well for José, but he showed one of the reasons I respect him so much. He shook it off, adjusted and came back strong! He was a shootout beast, and won it!! Here was his comment after the game:
"The first three shots, they had two goals," Theodore said. "After that you kind of get that rhythm. I adjusted a few things, my timing, and then I felt pretty solid."
Here's my thought on goalies and shootout...even if a goalie has the first 3 goals scored on him, if his teammates score 3 goals also, then it's a whole new game, and it continues. So it's just as much up to those scorers as it is to the goalies, right? But the goalies are the ones that get the crap fallout from shootout losses. That really aggravates me. And if a goalie doesn't really have confidence that his teammates are going to score, that has to be weighing on their mind. Luckily the Wild scored in the shootout early on, and that had to give José some confidence and gave him the time to adjust what he was doing. Way to go, Wild and José!!
