I think your memory isn't as good as you think it is either..

That series wasn't decided on goaltending. Tim Thomas faced less shots overall than Price (229 vs 242) and allowed 1 more goal. Three games, including game 7, went to OT.
This Series was literally decided by 1 goal.

If you think Thomas clearly outplayed Price you need to re-watch that series.
The series was lost in game 3 and 4 when Price lost focus and let the Bruins back in the series when they had a stranglehold. Shoddy puck handing and bad goals. It had nothing to do with game 7. Go back and view the games.

Thomas > Price in that series.
