Just remember his playoffs run to the conference finale were we were outshot and outchanced big time.. That was the Halak show.. He always responded well when the challenge was big, thats what I meant.. You have to give him credit where its due.. But playing 60 games per season at a very high level is another story.. A guy like Tim Thomas by comparison is at his best when well rested (from Claude Julien's mouth)
He also played a HUGE part why the Habs made the playoff's during the 08-09 season when the team collapsed and was 1 win away from getting a medal during the Vancouver Olympics.He always seems to perform under pressure...
