For all the shutouts that he had, I don't remember him exactly stealing a game. The defense was fantastic.
I remember him stealing several. At least 3. You can go peruse the old Bryz threads and GDTs if you don't believe me. The defense in March was horrific, Bryz bailed them out. He wasn't facing perimeter shots, he was getting tested hard a lot. I think you're thinking of December, when the D was actually playing well and Bryz was letting in perimeter shots.
It wasn't like Bryz had it easy and cruised behind a cushy D to improved stats, he actually earned them the hard way. He saw an alarming number of odd man rushes and breakaways when the D was caught out of position and stopped a good chunk of them, certainly more than he had been prior to March.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
