No, here's the difference. A pitcher doesn't pitch any night. He rarely goes 9 innings. Curt Schilling won the '93 NLCS with a record of 0-0. Mitch Williams blew two saves.
Although with the NHL, you can't win with one goalie. I've seen games lost because the offense gave nothing. One player can never win by himself.
