I guess...I mean, he played very well, which is a pretty good indication of being a big game player to me. I guess it would be really notable if he was playing 33:00 a night, but that doesn't seem reasonable to expect from Kimmo Timonen. Outside of the true top dogs in the league (Pronger, Lidstrom, Chara), I'd bet Timonen compares pretty well with that second tier of playoff defensemen since the lockout.
