Good save, but I still think Perkins was better.
+1, I don’t think its really that close either.
-1, Perk’s save preserved a point for the Gs. Perkins’ might have been prettier or something, but Seattle would have won either way, so his save didn’t really matter much.
It still wasn’t a particularly impressive save though, that is fairly routine. I get that it was important for saving points but I would expect a starting goalie to make that save every time.
So you were expecting something more aesthetically pleasing to your eye. That’s incredibly subjective. A lot of GKs made arguably pretty saves over the weekend. There has to be something more objective in the selection process. Perk’s save had more impact on the game.
Save of the week is all about how impressive a save is on the difficulty scale as far I’m concerned. There are dozens of saves each week there preserve a win or draw, just because a save does that doesn’t make it good. It was a solid save and he did well to push it wide but I just don’t think it’s even close to Perkins on the difficulty scale.
That was Perk’s first start in two years. Good outing.
Why did/does he wear protective helmet? Did he have a concussion?
He’s had several concussions. He was out almost all last year with concussion symptoms.
