At the end of the season, Rinne was ridden hard and put away wet just like Niemi. There was no intent for Buffalo to rest Miller in preparation for the playoffs, it was happenstance due to Miller's injury. Quick is sort of in between. The Kings didn't start riding him until mid-March.

Edit:
I will make my point about rest again or retract it at the end of the playoffs. I have my list of goalies who were rested and those who were not for all 16 teams. Over the last half decade, the rested ones have been winning.
Well Antti sure has been getting his fair share of rest the past three games!
