He also played less than half the minutes. He was effective. He was also second in hits for defenseman. He was solid on the PK as well.
One fewer game played too in the postseason. Give him that extra game and he'd likely have been 2nd in blocked shots to Brad Stuart. Wasn't too shabby during the regular season either, with 21 blocked shots in 20 games
I'd like to play a little stats game. Divide shots blocked by time on ice. That'll give an accurate depiction of who's blocking the most shots.
Stuart: .053 shots blocked/min
Let's try the playoffs.
Wow, that Lilja sure does suck at shot blocking. It's not like he's the best on the team.
OH WAIT, HE IS. By a pretty large margin, to boot, especially in the playoffs.
