NMU was outshot and outplayed in the BGSU series by a wide margin. He made 75 saves, many of the circus variety, and is the ONLY reason they won a game in that series much less two. To say they are just playing better teams now is a disservice to how well he played and how much he picked his team up and basically put them into the playoffs on his back. Nobody could keep that level of play up forever.Yes I would say there is some regression to the mean. But probably more importantly is that Tolvanen's shutouts, as significant as they were, were against our #4, #6 & #10 WCHA teams. In contrast, his last 3 opponents have been the WCHA's #1, #2, and #3 teams.
