    Which goalies would you say single handedly swept their opposition by themselves in the last 10 year . (By swept I mean as in 4 games not more)

    I would say Patrick Roy in 1996 finals against Florida. He had one shutout and allowed only 4 goals in the series. Made about 145 saves or something in that series.

    Another one would be Dominik Hasek in 98 vs my habs. We were playing the best hockey in years but just couldn't solve the dominator. He made like a total of 140 saves himself I think.

    Then Hasek did it again vs. Ottawa in 99. He had one shutout and allowed only 6 goals in those 4 games. Again his series save total was around 150. Just incredible.

    Next has to be CUUUUJOOOOOO vs Ottawa... 2001..... He shutout Ottawa for 2 straight games and only allowed a total of 3 goals in this series. He was like a god in net.

    Finally Mister J.S. JIGUERE. Conn Smythe winner and deservedly so. I'm talking about the series vs. Minnesota. He had THREE SHUTOUTS in this series and only gave up one goal in the final game. I dont care if Minnesota wasnt the best team. Anyone who gets 3 shutouts and allows one goal in the other on an average team like Anaheim is awesome IMO.

    Giguere vs. Detroit as well.

    Anaheim was a better than average team though. People forget how good Oates, Ozolinsh, Carney, Niedermayer, Rucchin, Leclerc, Salei, and Thomas were during the playoffs. Thats a pretty good veteran core. Imagine if Kariya and Sykora had played as good as they are capable of.

    i was just getting ready ot say Giguere vs Detroit... that imo was and still is 10 times more impressive than the Minn series...even with the 3 SOs

    162 shots on goal in 4 games... the first game was 64 sog ...Giguere had 62 saves that game and thats the most saves in a playoff start...
    Also...to beat a team as good as Detroit after they won the Cup the year before... and from going 0-8 against Detroit in 1997 and 1999...

    (man im gonna miss the playoffs this year)

    I remember the first game VS Detroit. It was clear in my head that Anaheim would not lost in OT, and that's what happen.

    The most surprising one has to be Giguere. Most of the people did not know who he was at the start of the season escept maybe the people from Anaheim. But after the win against Detroit everybody knew who he was.

    I wouldn't say Cujo in 2001. Yes it was a sweep, and yes he only let in 3 goals. But not 1 player on Ottawa showed up that series. They played for 5 minutes at the end of game 3, that's it (when they tied it 2-2, until Cory Cross in OT). I could have been in net, and the Leafs still would have won.

    Hasek against Habs in 1998.

    The Habs dominate the series, but get swept in 4 by a RED HOT Hasek.

    The Bruins seem to run into hot as hell goalies every year who steal away our playoff hopes(it should be noted we had guys like Dafoe and Jon Casey in net). Not many sweeps, but they do visibly kill us. Theodore, Brodeur, Thoedore, Hasek, Kolzig, the Beezer, Brodeur, Brodeur...etc.

    Thankfully the tide can be turned in the future with Raycroft or Toivonen going for us

    Agreed, we were dominating the Sabres but Hasek was godly.

    EDIT: LOL, I also forgot to mention Stevenson was the only guy who seemed to be able to solve him.

    Belfour and Lalime dominated Ottawa in the playoffs last year. It wasn't a sweep though. Cujo owned the Sens a few years back when we swept em.

    I was going to name that one as well. I mean Turner Stevenson was our #1 player that series, proof Hasek stoned everyone else.

    Shots on goal

    1st game: 3-2 Win Buffalo
    MTL: 48 (Only 2 goals)
    Buffalo: 26 (3 goals)

    2nd Game: 6-3 Win
    Montreal: 26 Shots: 3 goals
    Buffalo: 24 Shots: 5 goals

    3rd Game: 5-4 OT Win Buffalo
    Montreal: 46 Shots!! (only 4 goals)
    Buffalo: 31 Shots: (5 goals)

    4th game: 3-1 Win Buffalo
    Montreal: 38 Shots (1 goal)
    Buffalo: 18 Shots (3 goals)

    Total number of shots in series:
    Montreal:158 (10 goals)
    Buffalo: 99 (16 goals)

    Total Shots average in series:
    Montreal: 39.5
    Buffalo: 24.75

    See we had games in which we outshot you guys 48 to 26, 46 to 31 and 38 to 18 and we still lost by a wide margin because of your incredible goaltending and our sucky goaltending. Only game that was close was the 2nd one in which we still outshot you guys 26 to 24 yet still lose 6-3. To say Hasek wasnt the reason you guys swept us and that we didnt dominate is wrong.

    Why only in past 10 years?

    Dryden v. Bruins 71 was legendary.

    Meloche v. Habs 80

    Penney v. Bruins 84

    Roy v. Rangers 86

    Not exactly sweeps, but heres a few

    The Beezer against the Flyers in 1996, was amazing

    Lalime against Flyers in i believe 2001( year they could score goals, scored 2 or 3 whole series)

    3 of the 4 series you listed were not sweeps as in one team sweeping the other in 4 games but Penny vs. the Bruins which only was best of 5 series.

    I followed that series pretty closely and while Hasek was Buffalo`s best player, he didn`t singlehandedly steal the series IMO. I`ll admit he stole Game 1, Buffalo won 2-1 despite being grossly outshot but as for the rest of the series; Game 2 was a double-OT that was fairly even and could`ve gone either way, after that it seemed like Ottawa gave up. In Game 3 i can`t remember one good scoring chance by the Senators; Probably the easiest shutout of Hasek`s career. If anyone has the actual shot totals for that series i`d appreciate seeing them.

    Also, although it doesn`t qualify in the ten-year topic area, Curtis Joseph definitely single-handedly beat Chicago 4 straight in the first round in `93.

    Game 1: 2-1 Win Buffalo
    Buffalo: 15 Shots
    Ottawa: 41 shots

    Game 2: 3-2 Win OT Buffalo
    Buffalo: 39 Shots
    Ottawa: 47 Shots

    Game 3: 3-0 Win Buffalo
    Buffalo: 26 Shots
    Ottawa: 31 Shots

    Game 4: 4-3 Win Ottawa
    Buffalo: 26 Shots
    Ottawa: 43 Shots

    In the first three games Ottawa outshot Buffalo 119 to 80 yet only scored 3 times which is incredible. Game 4 Hasek made 40 saves again.
