The Isles and BJs were both successful off of everyone playing well especially the goaltenders. Nabokov gave Henrik a run for his money in the 1-0 shut out and Bobrovsky won the Vezina over Henrik. Both teams had their version of Henrik for that stretch. As with any team that has a Henrik, there's a chance to make the playoffs and play well. CBJ didn't get it done, Nabokov regressed as was expected and the Isles only got as far in the series as they did because of MAF blowing.

You take a .935% Nabokov or a .940% Bobrovsky out of the equation, neither would have made the playoffs despite the defense and offense both stepping up. They'll be back to .500 next season.
