Why stop there. Those goalies where actually somewhat relevant backups (other than Leighton who was only "relevant" for a year or so).

Here you go, a dozen goalies who went hot for six straight games. Not everyone had Andersen-like numbers, but these were for the most part #3 goalies. Munro and Garnett may even have been #4 on their respective depth charts.

Steve Passmore - 93.9% dec 27-mar 3 in 2001/2002)
Hannu Toivonen - 92.9% (oct 25-dec 4 in 2007)
Adam Munro - 92.9% (jan 10-jan 26 in 2006)
Martin Prusek - 93.9% (nov 17-dec 4 in 2003)
Mike Morrison - 93.9% (nov 7-nov 25 in 2005)
Yann Danis - 93.4% (oct 29-jan 18 in 2010)
Wade Dubielewicz - 93.8% (mar 15-apr 8 in 2007)
Jason Bacashihua - 93.3% (apr 9 - apr 18 in 2006)
Michael Garnett - 93.6% (dec 15 - dec 28 in 2005)
Michael Leighton - 94.0% (dec 21 - jan 1 in 2009/2010)
Steven Valiquette - 94.3% (dec 29 - mar 2 in 2007/2008)
Curtis McElhinney - 93.9% (mar 19 - apr 3 in 2010)

It would be alot easier to name goalies who were actually relevant backups for a a couple of seasons. Mikael Tellqvist, Mathieu Aubin, Curtis Sanford etc. Any career backup has had above 93% for six games, most of them above 94% I imagine. Not saying Andersen hasn't impressed, and he's more talented than most guys listed above, but it's a little early yet to draw conclusions.
