What happened to Leighton the one time the Flyers' D wasn't utterly dominant against the undersized Montreal team? Those three shutouts were a testament to how good that team was defensively and how badly they manhandled Montreal. It wasn't incredible goaltending on The Slob's part, it was incredible defense. Hell, there's a reason only one "highlight" save was produced by Leighton in that series....on a shot going wide anyways.

When they met a similarly deep offense that was able to get good chances on Leighton in the Finals he was exposed and destroyed.

I don't know why you still don't get how those things are mutually exclusive somehow.

And for the millionth time, not all shutouts are created equal.
