No need to insult now. The visiting Leafs fans have actually been pretty cool here. This one didn't say coming in peace though!

The way he played from all star break on, and in the playoffs was the best stretch I've seen from him in 4 years at least. Despite a few clunky games here, and there and a couple in the playoffs which are normal for all goaltenders. Usually at the end of the year he would start getting gassed and that would carry into the playoffs. He didn't look like that late this year. I'd say less starts earlier in the year slowed him down early, but kept him sharp later, and paid off.
