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 (4) – On the early goal, he was late to get to the post and Saad banked it off of him. He activates in reverse VH and it hits his shoulder and banks in. On the second goal, he had no chance at it redirected to Toews for the open net. Third goal was a bad one that skipped and hit the top of his pad, momentum Killer after just battling back to tie the game 12 seconds earlier. It was a tough first period allowing three goals on seven shots. Good saves on Kane, Toews and Keith early in second. And big saves on Kane and Hossa on the 5 on 3 as well as a huge left pad save on Shaw back door. Fourth goal goes off of Muzzin shortside, who was also screening him, after he knocked his stick out of hand. Good saves on Shaw and Kane while down 4 to 3 to keep them in game. Big saves with 4:30 left on Hossa and Toews in tight. Left pad save on Bickell was great but not as great as the pad save on Shaw with five seconds left in the third, based on the timing of it. Big right pad save on Saad early in OT, and tracked the puck well through traffic as Chicago pressed. Got it done when needed, got stronger as the game went on.
Corey Crawford, Chicago Blackhawks (3) – He had a good save on Kopitar early and got some help from a post on Toffoli. The first goal was a bad rebound that Carter bats out of the air. The second goal hits Rozsival in from before the rebound is fired blocker side. He made a good glove save on Williams late in the first to keep it at 3-2. Not tested much early in second, but a good save on Williams side to side play. Toffoli's goal was a bounce just like the Toews goal in the first; no chance on the play. Good save early on Pearson, not tested much. The fourth goal, by Gaborik, is a bad rebound that punches out and hits him, then drops on his stick for the open net. Great left pad save on Brown with 33 seconds left to send it to OT. He didn't have much of a chance on the game-winning goal, screened and hits Leddy in front and goes over his right shoulder. Tough way to lose.
