Frank's Finals Numbers
 
Niittymaki stopped an amazing 132 of 136 shots on goal by the Chicago Wolves (0.91, .971) and did not allow an even-strength goal over the first 259:38 of the series, a span of nearly 13 full periods.

The Wolves didn't score an even strength goal in the series until it was 5-1 in game 4 of a 3-0 series

i've been woundering this, how does he get the nickname "Frank"?

From the 1930s and 1940s Chicago gangster Frank Nitti. Niittymaki---->Nitti---->Frank

Dont you know its the impenetreble defense of the Phantoms that was inflating his numbers? I mean, he really sucked because the Chicago announcers kept talking about his "rebound problem". If the Wolves had gotten to their rebounds, the score would have been 20 - 1. Oh and did I mention all the posts they hit?






























For the sarcastically impaired, I'm joking. Nitty was awsome, WTG!

To follow up on you sarcastic statement :) I didnt get to see the videos but there is such a thing as steering the rebounds. :) So even if the rebounds were big, if they were put to a corner, or away from everyone else that would be a good thing.

I have been watching Niittymaki since his rookie season and I never thought that rebound control was one of his problems. In his rookie season, his two biggest problems were his stickhandling (which is still not great) and coming out of the crease to cut down the angle (which he has improved tremendously). The only other "flaw" that I saw in his game at that time was that he would duck at shots coming towards his mask. I truly think that Niittymaki will become a very good NHL netminder.

On the other hand, I do think that Esche has a huge rebound control problem. Fortunately, he is quick enough to, most times, make the second and third save on the rebound opportunities that he leaves in front of the net. However, as he gets older, I think this will bite him in the rear as, eventually, he will lose some of this quickness.
