No but my data earlier was for the entire playoff season. Just looking at Varlamov's numbers against the Pens and Holtby's against the Rangers the Holtby's GAA goes down to a 1.90 with a .929 save % while Varlamov's GAA balloons to 3.74 with a .898 save percentage.

Of course Varlamov faced some tougher chances but he also had the luxury of playing behind a team that actually tried to and succeeded in scoring goals, witness Fleury's 3.01 GAA and .878 save percentage in the same series.

I'll take a series where the play of my team actually matters compared to a coin flip any time. If you prefer coin flips then have at it...
