Goaltending is always a huge part of winning in the NHL, but its importance is magnified even further in the playoffs.
We are now in the middle of Round 2 and already we have seen some outstanding play by netminders that helped their teams steal vital games.
There have also been some dreadful performances by goalies that cost their clubs at critical times and even contributed to their failure to win games or advance to the next round.
Here is a look at the best and worst goaltending games so far of the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs.
Feel free to mention any games on either side of the ledger that you feel I may have missed and indicate why you feel that game belongs on either list.
Because I try to remain optimistic, I have included 10 games on the best performances list and only five on the worst. We'll start with the five worst goaltending performances before finishing with the 10 best.
