Yet the rookie projected to be no more than an NHL backup, Andersen, comes in for the ducks and goes 6-0 with a .950+ SV% and no one is crying fowl (hah!) or unsustainable. Obviously neither team is going to end the season with the goaltending stats they have now but people are so quick to call the Avs pretenders when simply watching their games will tell you otherwise.
The Ducks were 2nd in the Western Conference last season, and they aren't winning because of unsustainable goaltending. Andersen has played 6 games. Hiller has played 11.
To be prepared is half the victory.
