Detroit Red Wings, 2008

When aging veteran Dominik Hasek, 43, looked shaky midway through Detroit's first-round series against Nashville, coach Mike Babcock tapped Osgood, who had been in a regular-season rotation. Osgood, who had the best GAA in the NHL that season (2.09) surrendered only 30 goals in 18 playoff starts and became the fourth goalie in NHL history to open the Stanley Cup Final with back-to-back shutouts, as the Red Wings downed the Penguins in six games.
