I can guarantee you that there will be multiple series won because one goaltender stepped up and made timely or spectacular saves and one didn't. It's been this way in every year of NHL history. The goaltender is the single largest difference maker in hockey.
Thomas's winning the Conn Smythe is irrelevant. Price played only one round, in which he held his own while playing for a crippled team. the absence of Markov and Pacioretty affected the outcome but I didn't see Thomas outplaying Price, clearly or otherwise. If he had, his 1st place team shouldn't have taken 7 games to eliminate an 8th place team.
