I'll just link this. Scroll down to the "save" section. The difference in quality of what Anderson was facing vs what Vokoun was facing is very, very significant to my eyes. Long, unscreened wrist shots from the wall by Turris while he's all alone don't have anything on difficulty compared to what Anderson was stopping in pretty much all of these clips.
Funny enough I watched the saves before commenting on your post. Also it should be noted that not all saves are shown. Vokoun had a lot for traffic around his net and those clips do a pretty good job illustarting that. Both sides had their share of unscreend shots from the wall. The penguins did have more shots coming from the slot or in the faceoff circles but without any kind of traffic those are relatively easy saves for Anderson.
