Giguere: 0.910 (vs NJ)
Roy: 0.898 (vs VAN)

I don't see how Thomas' playoffs can be considered to be remarkably up-and-down (besides, what you're essentially doing is reducing an already small sample size to something even smaller). Quick is really a massive anomaly with regards to how stable his save percentage was between series.

This just seems like grasping at straws.
Not how the game is coached, played or evaluated. Basically each game is broken down by the team into 5 or 10 minute segments from start to finish with variations.

A close tp flat line .abc SV% across all segments is more desirable or valuable than a roller coaster version.
