Lundqvist's gold medal from the '06 olympics might have something to say about that.
Sure, one could argue Olympics vs Stanley Cup playoffs, but fact is that in the Olympics, every game is a game 7.
Lundqvist wasn't, isn't, and won't be the reason why. Every goalie has their off-nights, and when they do, it's the guys in front of him that has to bail him out. I can bet my life on that Lundqvist has bailed out his team more than they have bailed out him.
