This is also the guy who lost a do or die for the playoffs shoot out to Brian Boucher after his team dominated shoots outs during the season and was playing arguably the worst shoot out team in history, the Flyers. At some point, the guy deserves a little blame. Lets we how he does without the wall of shot blocking limiting opponents to 2-3 great scoring chances a game.
Jon Quick is outstanding and has been the better playoff goalie the last two years, those numbers don't lie. But numbers are numbers, they don't account for the team in front of you. Nobody has been as consistently excellent over the last 6 years as Lundqvist, that's why he's rightly called the best.

As for that shoot out loss, Hank was the only reason there was a shoot out and it wasn't a 5-2 demolition. The Rangers got so badly out played that game it wasn't funny. As for the shot blocking thing, that's nonsense. His team often gets outplayed in the play offs and he bails them out. He's the real deal.
