Nope. Conklin got the nod in game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals vs. Carolina after Roloson got hurt, and proceeded to give up this goal:

MacTavish subsequently went with Markkanen for the remainder of the series.

Conklin was also the backup goaltender on the Pens in 2008 (where they lost to the Wings), and the Wings in 2009 (where they lost to the Pens), though he did not get any ice time in either of those series.
