You know what did look impressive? The skill he showed in posting that .908 against a 1-seed that scored the second-most goals in the league that year.

If all you remember of that run is a number, I seriously doubt you watched the games. Ward was brilliant in that series. Go find some Bruins fans, they'll back it up.

I know other goalies who post great numbers before getting blown out at the end of playoff runs who are dubbed "chokers" yet that label doesn't apply to Ward?
And I can think of one big silver difference between Ward and the goalie you're thinking of.
