yes, Campbell played a big role on that save too. The eye test told me that Niemi was great and those weren't softies he let him. Not more than 2 of those goals were

We were in a Cup run. Of course we needed some of those saves.

That doesn't change the fact that he let in way more goals than were acceptable in many key situations.
that's just wrong. If you are able to rewatch that series, you should do. Besides game 1 Niemi was great. He made a lot of those big saves.
