Early Playoff MVP

I think that we are far enough into the playoffs that it is meaningful to start picking playoff MVPs who have excelled for a few post-season games. So far in the playoffs, I think the MVP has been Roberto Luongo of Vancouver. He is the one player who is most responsible for his team's success to date. He has a spectacular .950 saves percentage and a 1.49 GAA. Without Luongo in goal, Vancouver would likely be losing their first round series against Dallas (they are up 3-1). To show this point, Dallas's goalie Marty Turco has played very well (though not as well as Luongo) and Dallas finds themselves losing the series. Had Luongo not been that much better than Turco where would things be?
