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.

Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers (5) - Strong in first period as the Habs pushed hard. The huge left pad save on Max Pacioretty was his best. The goal against was a bad bounce that he pokes off of Pacioretty. Big saves on Eller and Prust in the second. Strong in tight on Gallagher early in the third, huge saves on Subban on the penalty kill early, and then was amazing on the 6-on-4 with four minutes left in the game. He made five saves in the sequence, fought through traffic and looked in control and was his usual dominant self on Monday night. Stole the show in Game 2 for the Rangers.

Dustin Tokarski, Montreal Canadiens (3) - Calm in the net early on, good first save on Martin St. Louis. Had some depth management issues on goals 1 and 3, first goal was deflection off of Gorges, not his fault but he was deep. Same goes for the third goal on a great shot by St. Louis but at 5'11", it's tough to play deeper as it opens the net/lanes up for pucks to get through. Had big saves on Dorsett, Hagelin in second and very good saves on Pouliot, Richards and Stepan in the third period. Tokarski looked very comfortable as the game went on and played very solid in Game 2. He gave them a chance.
