- Mark Jones explains how Anton Khudobin is single-handedly salvaging the Hurricanes’ season (Bleacher Report)
My Opinion: There’s no doubt that Khudobin has been the best player on the ice for the Hurricanes over the past three games. I don’t think anyone will argue that.
Mark really goes over the numbers and advanced stats to show how the offense hasn’t really been helping Khudobin that much and is playing the same way as it was during the five-game winning streak.
But I find it hard to believe that in the ultimate team sport, that one player can lead the team to three wins. It could happen in one game, especially with a goalie, but over a three-game stretch, other players have to step up to get the wins.
