Osgood kept Detroit in the game as best as an injured goalie could be expected to, and much better than Ranford did. Ranford choked away the Wings' chances to go up 3-0 on the Avs, and then blew the lead entirely in game 4. Had he not done so, Osgood doesn't take the ice in that series. A healthy Osgood would have led the Wings past the Avs, because Roy was beatable until Ranford melted down and Roy smelled blood.
Shouldve strapped the pads on Hudler, he can probably stop a puck
