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.
Just because he was a goat in one series doesn't mean he was a hero in another. Montreal played horribly against. The only game they crashed the net... They won.
In the four wins, we scored 6, 3, 3, and 4 goals.
