This one’s a bit of a cheat because it’s two players. However, it’s hard to say which goalie would get the nod in the playoffs. Pavel Francouz was playing — and playing well — when the season went on pause. However, he was only getting so much ice time because Philipp Grubauer was on injured reserve.
Grubauer is supposed to be our starting goalie. And he certainly didn’t disappoint the team in the last playoffs.
Well, regardless, whichever goalie is in net has to be stellar. Goal tending can steal the playoffs. A hot goalie can take his team all the way to Stanley Cup victory.
