Roger Crozier? 6-5 when winning the Smythe in a losing effort, 8-11 otherwise.
Ron Hextall? 15-11 when winning the Smythe in a losing effort, 32-32 otherwise. As a general rule, defense gets better in the playoffs in the playoffs, but Hextall's .895 save percentage and 2.97 GAA in the regular season become .897 and 3.04 in the playoffs for his career.
Bill Ranford went 16-6 in 1990, 12-19 otherwise.
Among skaters, you have Joe Nieuwendyk - 11-10-21 in 23 games in 1999. 55-40-95 in 137 games otherwise. Not to mention, his Smythe is controversial.
