This.

Jaro was obviously terrific, but those performances happen almost every year. It was two rounds, not 4, and while there were some gargantuan saves, Mike Smith, Jonathan Quick, even Niemi at times (yeah, him!) have done the same. It's magnified cuz it was our team. Not taking anything away, but people act like we won more than half the rounds. We did not. He had two extremely good 7 game series then deflated. He also had a lot of luck and that's what you need most of the time. If Price get in that zone and the team actually scores timely goals (can we not dismiss the work of Cammy, fed by Pleks?) Timely goals. Timely goaltending. Good special teams. We seem to be in that situation except for our PP and PK, which I hope will improve as we go forward. (It was nice to see Nathan on the blueline. If he had 10-15 games under his belt, I'm sure he'd be comfortable and effective.)
