Dark horse candidates might be:
CuJo in Detroit with a 1.15 GAA, but he has only played 4 games so far.
Belfour in Toronto, if the Leafs can come back and beat the Flyers. He is 1.72 in 9 games, but with a 4 wins-5 loss record.
I don't think the Lightening have really been tested at all in the playoffs, so it's not like Khabibulin is stealing games left and right for them
I'll put my money on Kipprusof as I have him in my pool
