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.

Dustin Tokarski, Montreal Canadiens (5) – He stole the game for the Habs tonight. He was outstanding early on when the Rangers pressed in the first period with big saves on St.Louis and Hagelin that could have put it out of reach. His positioning was interesting as he used different depths for himself. Not being a big guy, you would think he would be more aggressive, but he was surprisingly patient and deep on Zuccarello in the third, a sign of confidence. He made a massive save on St.Louis in the final minute. Both goals were not his fault as they hit players in front of him.

Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers (3) – He wasn't tested as much tonight, especially early on, and made big saves on Pacioretty and Desharnais to keep it 1-0. The first goal by Markov was not good, he's there but it goes 5 hole, through the body. The second and game-winning goal hit players going into the net, unavoidable. Montreal found a way to get to him by not trying to make the perfect shot, funneling pucks to the net, and getting some favorable balances.
