Did you just completely neglect what I said about their system being conducive to low save percentages?

He went from a career <0.910 save percentage player into one with a 0.930 save percentage over the course of a playoff series. He became a top-5 goaltender for that 25-30 game stretch and won them the cup.

The next year, he posts a 0.926 and takes them to the finals.

They were getting elite-level goaltending from him in the playoffs those 2 years - there's a reason he was getting Conn Smythe consideration in both of those playoff years.
