Fisher: 2G 2A
Getzlaf: 2G 2A

However, yes, Fisher's overall playoff production was lower than Getzlaf's. But Fisher stepped up in the Finals even when Spezza took a step back, and Fish matched Anaheim's 2C scoring in that series.
The series is becoming pretty foggy for me (I can't believe it's been so long) but as I remember our top-line was shut-down by probably the best defence pairing of the 21st century in Pronger-Neidermayer (maybe rivalled by Lidstrom-Rafalski, Weber-Suter). Sure, Fisher and Alfredsson still had to contend with Beauchemin, but if it had been Alfie-Fisher vs Pronger-Neidermayer and Spezza-Heatley against Beauchemin-X, we would have seen Heatley-Spezza put up far better numbers.

No doubt about it though, Fisher's been great in the playoffs since the lock-out.
