We've charted the last 50 goals allowed by each goalie in the regular season and every goal in the postseason, with the help of Apex Video Analysis and Save Review System from Upper Hand Inc., to see what patterns emerge.For the first time in NHL history, the 2020 Stanley Cup Final will involve two starting goalies who have represented Russia internationally when Andrei Vasilevskiy of the Tampa Bay Lightning opposes Anton Khudobin of the Dallas Stars. Thirty percent of his regular-season goals came on shots against the grain, almost double the 17.7 percent average for more than 6,000 goals tracked during four years of this project, and the Islanders scored five of their 11 goals (45 percent) in the series in this manner.Looking over traffic: Vasilevskiy has always tried to look over screens rather than around them, almost standing straight up like he's on tippy toes. Quick releases and one-timers played a role in 55 percent of the goals, including seven of 11 against New York, up from 30 percent in the regular season and above the 37.4 percent tracked average.Pucks off pads: Rebound goals weren't an issue against the Islanders but they are up in the postseason to 25 percent from 14 percent in the regular season, and Vasilevskiy's pads are designed to create active rebounds that come off hot, so forwards may want to establish position further away from crease to take advantage of those opportunities. Khudobin went into the West Final with a .909 save percentage in the playoffs but looked a lot more like the goalie who led the NHL with a .930 save percentage in the regular season while saving 153 of 161 shots (.950 save percentage) against the Vegas Golden Knights. Catching Khudobin moving one way with shots the other way has accounted for 36.7 percent of the goals against Khudobin in the postseason, up from his regular-season total (28.6 percent), which was already well above the 17.7 percent average.
