I'll have to disagree with that. Maybe they are more visible, but more frequent? i don't buy it.
I can only think of 1 game in last 2 seasons where he might have had a clunker. That was last game and even that is debatable. Lousy defense in front of him had a lot to do with it.

What do you base that on?
Here are his playoff stats last 2 seasons.
2011-12 20 GP, 10W, 10L, SV% .931, GAA 1.82
2012-13 9 GP, 4W, 5L, SV% .935, GAA 2.10
Please note that this includes last game 5 goals against.
Prior to last game, he was at a 1.875 GAA, which is about last season's PO clip. Sounds consistent enough to me.

I'd agree to this: Shutting out the caps in game 6 with a 1 goal lead was a master piece. Yes, he got a lot of help from the Dmen, but he was there to clean up any mistakes.
Following that up with a game 7 shutout was tremendous.
He has not played at the same level yet, but this is only 2 games in the Boston series.
