Does anyone really think Biron wouldnt/couldnt have been better than Lundqvist in either Game 4 or Game 5?

If Lundqvist "stole" Game 3, he surely "returned the stolen merchandise" in Game 5.
I don't think he played that badly in game 5. His defense left Gionta all alone on the first one. Second one was a pinball redirection off Stralman's skate. Third one was a snipe low blocker side by Trav. I think fans were so spoiled by stellar play that they think he can stop high difficulty shots at all times. There is some luck involved as well. In game 3, Sykora was an inch or two from scoring. In game 5, the breaks didn't go Henrik's way.
