But I think that's more an indictment of Nashville's ability to score than it is about Luongo's play.

Or the San Jose series where he had an ES sv% of .958. Again Luongo played great just as Thomas did vs. the Canucks, but I don't think I'd argue that San Jose deserved a better fate even though they would've had another goal per game in that series if Luongo's ES sv% was in line with his regular season one. The Canucks' team defense kept a lot of their chances to the outside and San Jose was largely too injured to fight their way to the scoring areas and that's what happened with the Canucks in the SCF.
where did you find those numbers?
