Per Wikipedia:

On April 13, 2007, in the Stars first and only playoff series of the 200607 season, Turco recorded his first ever playoff shutout against the Vancouver Canucks to tie the series 11. After the game, he stated, "We know we can beat these guys here [Vancouver], or at home, or anywhere."[2]
Turco went on to lose against the Canucks at home in game three, dropping a 21 overtime victory, when Taylor Pyatt got a quick one-time shot off a feed from Bryan Smolinski. In game 4, once again the Stars could not put up a win, losing to the Canucks 21 off of goals from Mattias Ohlund, then the game winner from Trevor Linden. The Stars then went on to win game 5 in the series with 10 OT win. Brenden Morrow scored the game's only goal 6:22 into the first OT period, allowing Turco to get his second career playoff shutout. Turco followed this up with his third shutout of the series in a 20 win. The series ended on Monday, April 23, 2007 with a score of 41 in favor of Vancouver, with Trevor Linden again scoring the eventual game-winner in the 2nd period.

The three shutouts posted by Turco in that series represent a record amount of shutouts in a single playoff series, a mark that has been tied by the New Jersey Devils' goalie Martin Brodeur, the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim' goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere, and Philadelphia Flyers' goalie Michael Leighton.
