What better goaltending could you possibly expect, if you considered that matchup not to feature 'great goaltending'? In that game they combined to save .963 . The chances were there. The goalies were there too. I know I, for one, was impressed by Aebischer actually stoning the Devils on some quality chances. He didn't do that in the Devs/Avs game on Nov 1 (which was a seven-goal game - 4-3 Devs - with the exact same number of shots and equivalent scoring chances as the 1-1 Nov 30 bout).
