Throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs, NHL on TSN analyst and former NHL goaltender Jamie McLennan ranks the netminders after each game night.

Number values assigned are out of five with five being the best performance.

Tuukka Rask - 4 - The breakaway save on Callahan in the third period was his best to preserve the win, huge bounceback game and also improved his record in elimination games.

Henrik Lundqvist - 4 - He was the only reason this was not a sweep. Countless 10 bell saves, the combination left pad save on Horton and Krejci in the second period showed his athleticism and leg power.

Corey Crawford - 4 - Real strong crease control, did not seem out of position one time tonight, fought for position on the penalty kill as Detroit tried to crowd the crease, great left pad save through traffic on Kindl, rebound control was strong.

Jimmy Howard - 3 - Continues to impress with his positioning as he was barraged by the Hawks all night long with 40-plus shots, did not waver in trying to be aggressive and out of his net. Explosive pushes out on Sharp, Kane and Shaw as his game did not change with the score.
