That also brings up another point. Quality of shots faced could be more important than quantity. If the guys in front of the goalie keep giving up big scoring opportunities, then it won't take many shots to score a lot of goals. On the other hand, if the team plays very tight around the goalie, he could have a 40 save shutout, but the majority of those shots could be garbage shots that didn't have a chance of going in.
