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 (1) - Rough night for him, uncharacteristic goals against, the Plekanec shot was a soft goal that goes under glove. On Pacioretty's, it goes through the body five-hole and Bourque's goes shortside and his night is over. Good move by Alain Vigneault to change goalies, Henrik wasn't sharp and it sparked his team to get back into the game.

Cam Talbot, New York Rangers (1) - Comes in to stop the bleeding at 4-1. He allows an early goal to Bourque, tries to settle in but is not tested much. The Bourque hat trick goal was the back-breaker as that put the Habs up 6-4 and the game out of reach.

Dustin Tokarski, Montreal Canadiens (3) - Two big saves in the first period, one on Richards with a good post play and a great desperation save on Hagelin as it hits the shaft of his stick. Bad goal against Stepan allows them back into it as the Rangers hang around. The second period was crazy, no chance on the Nash goal as it takes a bounce off Gorges' stick, and the Rangers continue to press to make it 4-4. Certainly not his fault, but wasn't overly sharp in the second. Came up big in the third, his best work of the game was at 6-4 when he made a big save on Nash while shorthanded, then on Zuccarello late in the game with his right pad. It certainly will help his confidence moving into the next game.
