Binner should of stopped those first 2 shots for sure. Opening 2 minutes, down 2-0, just a killer. His mind just wasn’t there. Maybe he has something personal going on. Confidence is everything and right now he doesn’t have it.
Food for thought on Binner from this March 2020 SI story
. Seems he didn't "rush back" after the COVID break, either ...
Depleted after playing into mid-June, by far the longest run of his career, Binnington didn’t even resume skating until late July. Even then, he hit the ice for three private sessions with (his off-season goalie coach Andy) Chiodo before stealing away for a week of vacation, more concerned about recovering than rushing back. “It’s about knowing yourself, understanding what you need to feel better,” he says.
