not quite

halak had not been himself in the final week and half or so (reg season), and even he was getting some heat. He wasn't his usual flawless self. Even in the playoffs, he was great most of the time but he had a couple slip ups.

Personally, I thought it was fatigue, and I know people will say that he only played a bit more than half the games... but from february on, including the olympics, how much rest did he get, and when was the last time he took on that kind of load? Certainly not in the NHL. Not to mention the amount of work he had to put in for 60 minutes.
