Aebischer made some great saves yesterday against Ottawa but lost the game.
Toronto's Belfour isn't at his best and Kidd is far from a great goalie.
I haven't seen a lot of Cloutier or Lalime but from what I heard there not having great sesson either. They might rebound in the playoffs.

What do you think?
There is a big difference between being less then spectacular and being a solid goal tender. IMO, the most important part of playing goalie in the playoffs is make the timely save. It is about momentum more then anything else.

Joseph had pretty decent stats last post season, but was unable to get that one key save.
