I'd maybe accept the argument Parise may have had something to do with seeing less shots against on the PK. At even strength hell no.
Shots Against Per Minute:
11-12
Brodeur: 0.43
Hedberg: 0.45

10-11
Brodeur: 0.42
Hedberg: 0.45

Assuming quality of opponent was similar, seems like there's a slight difference in Brodeur's favor.

However, a good puck possession / forechecking forward can definitely lower shots against amounts. If the puck is in the other end of the ice, the opposition won't get shots.
