Vernon looked to be the obvious weak point on the Detroit Red Wings, but good lord, did he ever deliver in those playoffs. Hasek had a good playoff himself, but Vernon had an extremely good run - and an incredible one when you consider the teams he was facing. One bad blowout game against Colorado cost him a .934 (he fell to .927), but he was already up 3-1 in the series at the time, so the push-back from Joe Sakic and Claude Lemieux really only affected Vernon's hockey card stats and not the inevitability of the series.
