Bad goals happen and Holtby was better than Thomas in that series, no doubt about it. Thomas let in a couple of weak goals.
While Holtby was great in the series, people are seriously overrating him if they think he was the main reason we won. The reason we won was that we were playing incredibly defensive style of hockey, super trap one could say and add Holtby playing reliably it resulted in a win. Also Boston forwards werent very good at that series.
