Game 3 between the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals saw both Henrik Lundqvist and Braden Holtby come up big for their teams.
Goalies may not be the only member of the team, but they're often a key reason for playoff runs blossoming into Stanley Cup celebrations.
Hockey Night in Canada (@HockeyNight) asked its Twitter followers to send in their best their fondest memories of great goaltending performances in any given playoff year.
Here are some of the best responses:
Kyle Mayer @kymayer Patrick Roy, 1993, all those OT games. He gives up one, that ride ends early.
