Well, it's not like he even had a chance to get many playoff wins. He simply was stuck on one of the worst teams in the league for a few years, and when he finally signed with a good team he got injured before the playoffs.
Like I said earlier, the only "important games" he's really played since 2005 are in international play. He has played 27 games for the Czech Republic in 2005, with a record of 20-7, and 7-1 when facing elimination (and he only gave up one goal in the loss).
I did put Vokoun behind Kiprusoff due to Kiprusoff's 2005-06 season, but it could just as easily have been the other way.
