Dryden in 1971 by far the most incredible playoff run ever.

That year the Habs finished 4th in their division which was won by a monster Bruins team that scored something like 400 goals. The Bruins had Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, Buyck and Hodge all in their prime. Dryden had played a total of 6 NHL games before the playoffs started. The Habs upset the Bruins in the first round purely on the incredible play of Dryden and went on to excel in every series on the way to winning the cup.

To this day Phil Esposito tells that the play of Dryden was the best he had ever seen from a goalie in the playoffs.

BTW, Ken Dryden won rookie of the year the NEXT year! lol
