Because of past records, inexperience..., there weren't too many people that imagine these two would be in the finals. I think both goalies were spectacular. Each of them made a mistake here and there, but that's the way it goes. My hat is off to both Nik and Mikka.
Blame Mariouelli. The phantom interference call on Pratt and resulting goal gave the Flames their only goal of the game.
It would be tough to deny the Conn Smythe to a goalie with 2 SO in the SCF, and a record tying 6 in the playoffs, especially when the last comes in a game 7.
