In the 2010 Eastern Conference Finals against the Montreal Canadiens, Leighton allowed only seven goals in five games, posting three shutouts as the seventh-seeded Flyers advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals against his former team, the Chicago Blackhawks. Leighton started all six games of the Final series, though Boucher finished Game One, a 6–5 Blackhawks win, and Game Five, a 7–4 Blackhawks win. Boucher was the losing goalie of record in both games. Leighton struggled in the finals, posting a goals against average of 3.96 and a save percentage of 0.876 as Chicago defeated Philadelphia four games to two.
The finals was the only time during the playoffs where Leighton LOOKED human.Besides that,he HELPED the Flyers get to the promised land.
Except for the Boston game 7 when he immediately allowed 3 goals, and game whatever in the Montreal series.
Leighton isn't the answer, and he's an expensive not-answer. Boosh is doing just fine for cheaper. I wouldn't mind dumping him, yet at the same time I do because I have less faith in Backlund.
