Eastern goalies playoff experience

As Huet and a few posters here noticed, Broder is the only healthy starter with many playoffs games under his belt.

Just for fun, I looked at every starter and back-up goalie's playoff numbers.

- Brodeur : 144 GP - 10 runs (+1 as back-up)
- Hasek : 97 GP - 8 runs (+3), injured
- Burke : 35 GP - 4 runs (+3), back-up
- Esche : 19 GP - 1 run (+1), back-up
- Aebischer : 12 GP - 1 run (+2), back-up
- Weekes : 8 GP - 1 run, back-up
- Grahame : 2 GP - 0 run (+2)
- Gerber : 2 GP - 0 run (+1)

Emery, Lundqvist, Miller, Biron, Niittymaki, Huet have never seen an NHL playoff game, as have back-ups Cam Ward and Clemmensen, who are not supposed to play.

Assuming Hasek won't be back in time and all current starters are playing, when the playoffs start, Brodeur will be the only one in nets with more than 150 mins of playoff hockey under his belt.

Guess that's another consequence of the lock-out, but still pretty astonishing.

What is interesting is the # of Starts in the Playoffs for the goalies that will be the starters.

1. Ottawa - Emery 0 (assuming no Hasek)
2. Carolina - Gerber 0
3. NY Rangers - Lundqvist 0
4. Buffalo - Miller 0
5. Philly - Nittymaki 0
6. NJ Devils - Brodeur 144 (approx)
7. Montreal - Huet 0
8. Tampa Bay - Grahame 1 (I think possibly 0)

TSN had a little clip on this about a week ago, Where All had 0 except for Brodeur, so I'm not sure why tsn.ca has a 1 for grahame, but either way, they were saying how NJ has a huge advantage going to the Playoffs because of the Brodeur Factor.

They were also saying how strange it is to have so many inexpereinced goalies leading their teams into the playoffs, and let alone inexperienced, NO experience. Very Strange.

But it should just make it more interesting, which will survive and play well, which will crack under the pressure.

Grahame has about 20-40 minutes of playoff experience

Its obviously a new era for goalies and a new goalie will definitly make a name for himself come the playoffs

Grahame has 144 min of playoff experience in 2 games (according to NHLPA.com), both with Tampa but not the same year. Guess at least a game went to OT...

That's impressive compared to Gerber's 20 mins or the big 0 for the 5 others...

Back-ups are more experienced this year. Definitely a new era and will definitely make for an interesting playoff year in the East...

On our team, I believe in Huet. If the team in front of him stays calm as it is now, he will be just as fine...

Burke only 35 GP is interesting considering how long he's been in the NHL.

792 regular season GP 316W-330L-104T

35 playoff GP 12-22
17 of these games were in his rookie season 1988 where he went 9-8 with NJ. I can't even remember him in a NJ uniform. Since then he has gone 1W - 4L in 3 different years. In other words, he was the starting goalie and lost the first round in 5 games in 1998, 2000, 2002.

Playing in Montreal is pressure enough if you ask me. I'm not worried at all about Cristobal.
