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.

Tuukka Rask, Boston Bruins (3) - The first goal that beat him was seeing-eye shot that got past him on the blocker side. He was late to react on Rene Bourque's five-hole shot in the second period. He came up with a huge left pad save on Brandon Prust at the end of the second period to keep it at 2-0. Overall, he was not as sharp in this game in regulation; he looked to fight the puck in situations and his rebound control was not a premium as it usually is with him. Conversely, he was great in overtime, he looked more dialed in and more composed. Rask made a huge save on Eller and couldn't have made a better glove save on Plekanec. He simply did not have a chance on PK Subban's screen shot winner.

Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens (5) - Price was the best player on ice tonight for either team.  His saves on Krug and Campbell in first period were terrific and his ridiculous saves on Iginla and Eriksson in the second period on penalty kill were the only reason this game stayed close. As the pressure continued heavily in third period, he was beat on three screen shots as the Bruins did a great job of getting traffic in front of him. He continued his outstanding play in overtime with saves on Marchand, Krejci and Chara.
