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.

Henrk Lundqvist, New York Rangers (4) - He was very sharp early on. He was being targeted on blocker side and made it look easy. The glove hand was real good as he made big saves on Pacioretty and Prust. He set them both up for the play by giving it and taking it away. He was not overly busy or pressed on second shots and it helped having a 7-spot to defend.

Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens (2) - It wasn't his day. He was hung out to dry by defensive miscues, looked a bit unsettled and scrambled more than he usually has. He was lifted after the second period to get him out of the nightmare that was going on in front of him. He didn't have much of a chance on the two backdoor goals. A breakaway goal and a poor post play read on the fourth goal ended his day.

Peter Budaj, Montreal Canadiens (1) - See the Carey Price breakdown. It was a garage sale in the third period as the Rangers continued to push and take advantage of the front of the net. He did his best to stop the bleeding, but was victimized for three power play goals. In the end, he gave Price 20 minutes off from the Habs awful day.
