Jonathan Quick, Breaking Records


One victory away from the Stanley Cup, Jonathan Quick's .950 Save Percentage and 1.36 GAA are in record setting territory. Among goalies that played at least 10 games in a single playoff season only Frankie Brimsek's 1.25 GAA in 1939 can beat Quick. His Save Pct. would also be the best ever among goalies playing at least 10 playoff games. It would however not be the best ever if we look all the way back to 1950 and goalies who played less than 10 games, if only because they won the Cup too quickly.

 

All-Time Save Percentage Leaders - Single Post-Season (Saves/Shots, Save Pct.)

  • Terry Sawchuk 1952 (8gp) - 217/222  .978
  • Johnny Bower 1963 (9gp) - 271/284  .954
  • Rogie Vachon 1969 (8gp) - 245/257  .953
  • Jacques Plante 1960 (9gp) - 211/222  .951

These shots on goal numbers were gathered from both The Hockey Summary Project and Google News Archives. From 1951 and prior, shot totals are far more difficult to confirm from newspaper reports.




As far as only speaking of the Stanley Cup Finals, Quick still rates with the All-Time greats with this year's performance.  His .972 (70/72) is tied for third best since 1951.
