Yes, he "almost single-handedly" won the first two rounds while Lundqvist didn't.

Through the first two rounds, Halak gave up more than 3 goals 4 times, while Lundqvist never did.

Lundqvist won 6 one-goal games, while Halak won 5.

Halak never won a game like Lundqvist did in the 3OT game.
Are you seriously trying to say Lundqvist first two rounds in 11-12 are more impressive than Halaks first two rounds in 2010?

Maybe just try and watch the games instead of looking at stats for this one because Halak was clearly the reason Montreal made it past Pittsburgh and Washington.

BTW, Montreal and NYR faced two completely different Washington teams. The one Halak faced, Ovechkin was on, Washington was playing high powered fast paced offense that complimented their game. The one Lunqvist faced was an offensive team that was trying to play a defensive system. Not to mention their best player played absolutely awful all series.

If you take away the stats, this isn't even close.
