I'm sure you'd find pretty similar records for most goalies unless they were on a low seed that was actually better than their regular season record (like LA two seasons ago).
Its not necessarily about seeding. Its about beating a team nobody expected you to beat.
Every series the Rangers were expected to lose, they lost. They've also list series they were expected to win.
2006 Devils, Sabres, Penguins, 2010-11 Caps, 2013 Bruins. Virtually everyone expected the Rangers to lose those series, and they did.
Several goalies on mediocre teams have pulled massive upsets. Healey in 1993 was a massive upset. Irbe in 1994 was a massive upset. Beezer in 1986 was a massive upset. Giguere in 2003, Roloson in 2006, Halak in 2010, Beezer in 1996, Casey in 1991 etc etc.
