Regardless of whatever crowd former Toledo and current Milwaukee goalie Drew MacIntyre had to fight through to get regular-season minutes, he’s always had a knack of separating himself come playoff time.
Through his first 13 career first-round playoff games, MacIntyre is 10-3 with a 1.53 goals-against average and a .947 save percentage. He gave up just four goals in his team’s four-game sweep of Rockford to open this postseason, stopping 105 of 109 shots in the process.
“The bottom line is I’ve learned I can’t worry about the other goalies on my team,” said MacIntyre, 25. “I’ve sat on the bench for some playoff runs. I’ve learned that chance (to be a playoff goalie) doesn’t come along every year. I know how much playoffs can make a goalie.”
