I love Niemi, but people seem to think he was god in the playoffs that year. Other than the San Jose series, he was average, and won the cup by barely outplaying Leighton.
This year against Phoenix?

And as you said, San Jose. Niemi gave up one goal from 45 shots in game 1 of that series. If Crawford faces 45 shots, he probably lets in a 6 pack. Then it's a whole nother series.

It's funny...now when you face 30 shots the defense is horrible, blah, blah, blah. When you give up 45 - and most are high quality chances...but your goalie stops most of them...all is fine.
