Every night of the Stanley Cup playoffs, TSN hockey analyst and former NHL goaltender Jamie McLennan breaks down each goalie's performance.

Jamie's number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark.

Steve Mason, Philadelphia (5) - Big part of the reason it was 1 - 1 after the first period, looked comfortable and in control of his game.  He was late to get across a bit on the Dominic Moore goal, but was real good on handling the puck.  He made a huge stop on Ryan Mcdonagh at end of 2nd to keep the lead heading into the 3rd period.

Henrik Lundqvist, New York (3) - Not tested very much in the first, the Matt Read goal was a neat set play off the backboard.  Jakub Voracek's goal was scored on a great deflection but he was really deep on the play, even for what we're used to with him.

Corey Crawford, Chicago (4)- Very efficient but aggressive game, big saves on T.J. Oshie in overtime, was solid all game, handled the puck well, stepped up when needed.

Ryan Miller, St. Louis (3) - Goal by Marian Hossa was a rebound but there was contact on the play that turns him.  He gave the Blues a chance to win.  He didn't have much chance on the breakaway GWG, that was a great play by Jonathan Toews.

Frederik Andersen (4) - Solid bounce back game, had answers for Ray Whitney, Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, needs to find consistency in his game.

Kari Lehtonen (2) - Not a very good night, had issues with crease management and positioning, was exposed on side to side plays, needs to get back to the drawing board and to the basics.

Tim Thomas (NR) - Saved one of two shots.
