The top player performances in NHL playoff history

Yardbarker Logo By Adam Gretz of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 20: The league average save percentage in the 1985-86 playoffs was .895 as the NHL was in the middle of its firewagon hockey glory. Patrick Roy finished the playoffs at .923, a mark that would have been good in even the most defensive era, let alone the highest scoring era in league history. He did that as a rookie and backstopped the Montreal Canadiens to the Stanley Cup while also taking home the Conn Smythe Trophy. Everyone had to know right then and there that he was going to be a special, special player.
