There were lists ranking the goaltenders heading into the playoffs, but those lists were based on names and performances during the season.
But, of course, we all know the playoffs are a totally different game.
Most of these goaltenders haven't played badly (it's tough to get to the second round with a sieve in net), but some have been significantly better than others.
As we all know, the team with the best goaltender doesn't necessarily win the cup each year—but the past Stanley Cup winners' goalies have gotten hot at the right time. Any team could ride a hot goalie all the way to a championship.
Who knows? Maybe some of these top goalies will fall from grace, and won't be able to replicate their first-round form, or vice versa.
Maybe goaltenders who weren't stellar will be able to flip the switch and stand on their head going into Round Two.
But that's just the excitement of the playoffs.
