Boucher gives you a much larger sample size to view.

Also, in a technical sense, Boucher is a better goalie. Not quite as good at making the first stop but much better with rebound control. Leighton is standing on the shoulders of giants right now. The defense has been stellar... absolutely stellar.

Neither goalie is anything close to a starter in this league, but I value consistency in a backup over the ability to get hot and thrive on lucky bounces and defensive clears.
