Jhonas Enroth's numbers aren't bad this season. Following tonight's 4-1 loss to the Rangers, he is 8-6-1 with a 2.43 goals-against average and .922 save percentage.
Those averages, though, have come from a hot start and extended slump.
Enroth began the season 7-1 with a 1.95 GAA and .935 save percentage. In his last seven decisions, he's 1-5-1 with a 3.10 and .905.
"My numbers are still pretty solid, but the last couple games have been a little bit worse than the beginning of the year," Enroth said. "But this is hockey, and hockey is up and down just like your normal life, so it’s nothing that I’m working on or thinking about. I always trust myself and my skill set. I just need to come back here Monday and work hard."
Enroth had a rough night against the Rangers. The second goal trickled through his pads and the third sailed past his glove.
"We need to score a couple more goals, but I think I could have given up one goal," Enroth said. "That’s three goals I needed to save. That’s pretty bad."
