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 - (3) He gave them a chance to win early on with big saves on Saad, Hossa, and Kane. It was a very aggressive game for him, almost more than usual. He had no chance on the late goal to Sharp on a deflection. You can see Chicago's trying to get him moving and be overaggressive in the net; I'm sure Bill Ranford (goalie coach) will point that out to him to be aware of.

Corey Crawford, Chicago Blackhawks – (2) Los Angeles targeted his blocker side and definitely tried to create traffic in front of him. Voynov and Doughty had bombs from the point, Toffoli's goal was a partial break that slid underneath his left pad – he late to seal the ice on it – and he had no chance on the Carter goal, a quick bang-bang play. Even though it wasn't his best game, I was impressed that his positioning did not waver, a sign of confidence in his style.
