The Stockton Thunder won their opening playoff series 3-0 over the Colorado Eagles. Stockton outscored Colorado 10-5, and outshot the Eagles 97-88, but it was Stockton's goaltender Olivier Roy who stole the show. Roy, the Edmonton Oilers 5th round pick [#133] in 2009, was outstanding, stopping 83 of 88 shots in the series for a .943 save percentage.

His stellar play was a continuation of Roy's incredible hot streak which began on January 20th. The streak in the linked article brought Roy's season save percentage up to .925, and Roy held steady through the rest of the season, ending with that same .925 save percentage, though he did have a stop in Oklahoma City where he stopped 69 of 74 shots in three games for a .937 save percentage. Roy's season totals thus far, including Stockton and Oklahoma City's regular season and the series against Colorado are 1,488 shots against, 1,379 saves and 109 goals against for a save percentage of .927, an astounding number for a young goalie with a prior career best season save percentage of .911.

The Thunder now face the Alaska Aces in the Western Conference semi-finals, a seven-game series, with the Aces holding home-ice.
