Again, you can't just say "oh, their goaltending was bad, they didn't deserve to lose the series". That's stupid. Goalies are a part of the team, too, bro.
The Coyotes played a very unsustainable brand of hockey and got lucky the entire postseason run. They were even outplayed significantly by a poor possession team in Nashville significantly in the playoffs. Rinne played like a sieve, while Mike Smith in the playoffs turned into a brick wall.

The Isles outshot the Pens on a basis of 5 SPG over the 6 game series. Nabakov had a horrendous .842 save percentage. Put an average goalie performance (.909) and they win that series easily.
