Playoff teams are (generally) on a similar level playing field, especially by Round 2. Games like this go to OT for that reason. So, if your team can't win or even show up in an OT period, I think that is a much bigger problem than a goalie giving up soft goals here and there.
He does deserve some blame - so we will just agree on that one point and that's all.
It's a HUGE problem that the team didn't show up in OT. That said, people that bring up Hank's performance in OT as a means of absolving him make no sense. Hank put HIMSELF in that position.
