Juuse Saros made 27 saves on 31 shots during Thursday's 4-3 OT loss to the Carolina Hurricanes in Game 6.
In this must-win game, Saros started the night off strong. He gave up just one goal in the first and allowed his team to build a 3-1 lead by the midpoint of the second period. However, after giving up a power play goal later in the second, Saros saw the momentum of his night shift. He was unable to hold Carolina off the board in the third, allowing them to tie the game and force additional minutes. In overtime, the Hurricanes came out on top and Saros exited this matchup with a season-ending loss. He finished this game with a save percentage of .871, which was not up to the mark for a game of such importance. Overall, Saros helped his team reach the postseason with some great performances in the final stretch of the regular season, but come playoff time he faltered a bit and that contributed to a first round exit.
