Turco Was The Difference

from Pierre LeBrun at Sportsnet,

I find it hard to find a better story in the first round of the NHL playoffs than goalie Marty Turco helping his Dallas Stars knock off the defending Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks.

You know, the same Ducks I predicted would beat Dallas in seven games. Wrong, Pierre!

In the lead-up to that series between Pacific Division rivals, it was widely reported how J.S. Giguere had the highest playoff winning percentage among active NHL goalies. That would be the difference. Especially, some people added, given “Turco’s spotty playoff record.”
