And I'm not sure I would buy Lundqvist's 2012 being that high.
.931 save percentage over 20 games is pretty impressive. Remember, the Rangers went the distance in the first two rounds, which gives a goalie who is playing well more games to rack up cumulative numbers. Thomas only played 5 more playoff games in 2011 than Lundqvist in 2012.

I don't know, maybe 10ish is too high, maybe 8ish or 9ish is a better estimate. I honestly don't care so much.

For whatever reason, Tom Awad basically dropped the ball on 2011 and 2012 playoff numbers.
