Andrew Raycroft still struggling

Last night Peter Budaj got the start for Colorado and was pulled after surrendering three goals on 14 shots through the first 20 minutes. Andrew Raycroft spelled him in the second period and gave up four goals on eight shots. Budaj was inserted back between the pipes in the third period and made seven saves.

As bad as Budaj has been, Raycroft has been worse. Last night's save percentage of just .500 brings his season average down to .889. That's better than last season's .876 but so much below is rookie season when he had a save percentage of .926.
