There's a difference when that goalie is the pure reason you gained a playoff birth. Mason is the reason the Blue Jackets made the playoffs for the first time in their history.

Mason, also, had an incredible season in comparison to Price's nightmare of a season.

You can give a little more wiggle room for a goalie who has performed at a high level all season, something Price hasn't done since 2008, on a consistent basis.

Mason has never played a playoff NHL game before, Price now has 13 games of experience while posting a 3.05 GAA and .897 SV%. If you're happy with that, fine. But I'm not one who wants to except mediocre performances.

Not to mention they are playing against most people's favourite out of the Western Conference, where-as Boston is second or third on that list (behind Pittsburgh & New Jersey).
