I gotta stick up for Osgood here. There was an atrocious goal in that Dallas series, an OMG game against Phoenix, and Kolzig was having one of those all-time runs, but that was a good playoff. A
good playoff. Let's say that Phoenix game (just the second game of the playoffs) doesn't happen: He's got a .927 in that run instead of a .918. Let's not condemn a man over
in a 22-game playoff. It's not about cumulative stats in the post-season; having one FUBAR game can kill the numbers, but in the long run, it's better to have a goalie let in seven in one game than four in one and three in another.
EDIT: But no, he wasn't a Smythe guy that year. Haha, just no. No. Wrong. No.
