I'm sure you can see the difference between looking for trends and handpicking the games you don't like.
.920 over 167 is .920 over 167 games. How is that not consistent? Actually, it's even more impressive considering there is a last place finish in that time span.
I don't care about the two games where 13 goals were allowed because in the larger 167 it doesn't play any significant role in shifting the numbers. In fact, the outlier season is that last place season. You are actually helping my argument. When you actually think about it, the one dragging the numbers down is the last place finish. On the aggregate, the 2010 season and the first 30 games until Emelin got hurt are quite consistent. And even as an outlier, 2011-2012 isn't bad.
Actually, if I take the 2010 season and the first 30 games of 2012 until Emelin got hurt, Price's SV is .922% over 102 games. Adding the 2011 last place finish brings it down to .920SV%.
