Your statement has no basis in fact.
IMO Marty was important in the series because his puck handling helped kill The Flyers forecheck he wasn't really anything special at stopping pucks though. I remember even NJ fans saying Bryz was better at stopping pucks through the series. The team got outplayed, out coached, and some injuries didn't help. The Flyers could do better in a rematch I think.
