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.

Jonathan Quick, Los Angeles Kings (5) - Quick put a show on Friday night, as he was dialed in from puck drop and exuded confidence all night long. The prime examples were the Corey Perry penalty shot and then the big breakaway chance he had where he had some words with him after the play.

He also robbed Ryan Getzlaf two massive times and it was hard not to call him a clutch goaltender. He delivers when the chips are down, with a ferocious work ethic in the net. Quick proved he's not only a big money goalie, but knows how to step up at the right time.

John Gibson, Anaheim Ducks (1) - Gibson looked like he was 20 on Friday night, as he had some rebound issues, wasn't getting a lot of help from teammates, but looked uncomfortable and a bit nervous. He fought the puck all night long before he was lifted.

But Gibson has a great future in this league. I was always concerned about him having to shoulder the responsibilities without a lot of experience, but he Will grow as a goalie and become one of the special ones.

Jonas Hiller, Anaheim Ducks (3) - He wasn't tested much, with not a lot of chance on the goals-against, but he did a decent job of mopping up after it was 4-0.
