Playoff Goalie Rankings

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/playoffs2008/columns/story?columnist=amber_david&id=3334900

Written before they began, I think the author would revise it after the first week of the playoffs. Suggestions for the Top Five after the first week.

5. Nabby (SJ)

4. Turco (Dal)

3. Thomas (Bos)

2. Fluery (Pit)

1. Price (Mtl)

Speaking of Price, many see comparisons to St. Patrick Roy. Not that it means much but tonight Price made 27 saves to shutout the Bruins. He became the second youngest goalie in NHL history to post a shutout in the playoffs. The youngest, St. Patrick back in ’86 – he was 2 weeks younger than Price is now.
