During the playoffs the team the taem played well enough to win but the goaltending was brutal.

If if there is a disconnect this year it's with the goalie not the team. The team got a lot better than 2011-12 and Price's numbers got worse(2.43 GAA to 2.59 and .916% to .905) instead of better.

People keep obsessing about size this and size that but goaltending was by far the biggest issue for this team against Ottawa.
