It kinda makes the Avalanche look like over-achievers to have taken the majority of wins in head-to-head playoff series. They won the series they were out-shot by margins of 3.3 over 5 games, 5.4 over 6 games, and 6.6 over 6 games. They lost the series they were out-shot by margins of 7.4 over 7 games and 14.4 over 6 games.
You call it overachieving, I call it significantly better goaltending.

True, but the goalie is part of the team, so I don't think it's overachieving.
