Yes, I totally agree.

I'd also be more suspicious of Lundqvist keeping up his stats if there wasn't precedent for goalies playing great and having great stats all season and I think him going without a prolonged slump this season has more to do with him playing fewer games and the team playing more consistently in front of him, not just some random luck factor
