The only thing anyone remembers about Leighton was the last goal of stanley cup. People forget how we were down 3-0 against Boston, Boucher gets injured and we win 4 in a row with Leighton in net. Then he posts 3 shut outs in the series against Montreal (yes we were playing better hockey). Yes he didn't have a great final series but without him we would have never made it that far. Bouch wasn't going to play solid 4 games in a row vs Boston.

Never understood all the Leighton hate, never will. We all can agree that last goal sucked, but that's something Bryz lets in on the reg. I will always remember Leighton as the guy that gave that team hope and something to fall back on, and I'll always respect him for that.
