Not at all, but it makes his performances in those playoff series "out of character" and elite.

He performed at an elite level - a level he wasn't performing at for a long time under the same system.

They got elite-level goaltending from a non-elite goaltender - giving us hope for someone like Dubnyk.

Meanwhile, you have teams like CHI/PIT that were so deep top-to-bottom at F and D that they won in spite of their goaltenders (<0.910 save percentage).

Maybe we can be that team
