Los Angeles Kings, 2012
The Kings' crablike goalie was spectacular while allowing only 29 goals in 20 postseason games as Los Angeles became the first eight seed to capture the Stanley Cup. He saved his best for last in a duel with the Devils' venerable veteran Martin Brodeur, as the New Jersey was able to get only seven pucks past him (two were deflected) during their six-game final. His 1.41 goals-against average and .946 save percentage set NHL marks for goalies who played at least 15 playoff games. For his efforts, Quick was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the postseason MVP.
