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.

Marc-Andre Fleury, Penguins (3) - Surrendered a tough first goal against on a deflection through the body short side. Second goal came from blown coverage, but great saves on Brassard, Stepan, and Zuccarello helped stabilize him in net. Good saves on Moore and Nash in OT before the breakdowns on the winning goal

Henrik Lundqvist, Rangers (4) - First goal came through a screen, but he was deeper than usual and it beats him short side. Made some big saves on Malkin, Neal, Stempniak and Kunitz to keep the score tied. Did a good job on the road on Friday night.

Corey Crawford, Blackhawks (4) - Great game, 30 saves, positioning and rebound control were outstanding, Big saves on Granlund, Stoner, Koivu, and kept the Blackhawks in it in the second period. Big save on Haula and Heatley in the third, no chance on back door play on Brodziak. Stepped up when needed and was the difference for the Hawks.

Ilya Bryzgalov, Wild (2) - Not much chance on the first two goals, deflection and back door play, good battle in crease and through traffic. He was not tested too much in second. Was beaten twice by Kane in the third - the short-side shelf goal was a great shot by Kane, but not good by Bryzgalov.
