Granted the entire team played in control, I will not take that way from them... but a goalie can luck out in games throughout the season and stumble upon a shutout from time to time -- except Bob, apparently -- but IMO a goalie cannot luck out three shutouts over five games without being at least a little in a 'zone'... and certainly no against one team in a postseason game... and a team that was playing very well coming in.

I will be the first to say that Leighton was a deserving goat in the Flyers not winning the Cup last year... but in that brief snapshot in the season I cannot deny he played well.

I understand how saying he 'stole' the series is finding objections since the game played well... but if we are to put horns on him for the Hawks series I think it only fair to credit him for three shutouts and getting the Flyers to the SCF in decent shape and health after a short Conference Final Round.
