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) - Aggressive early in the game, had a pokecheck one minute in to get the puck out of danger. He had some big saves on Hagelin, St. Louis and Boyle. First goal against was a breakaway by Pouliot that freezes him and beats him blocker side as Quick drops his knee looking glove. He had no chance on the second goal - he makes a great initial save on Hagelin, and it hits Voynov. Outchanced 10-5 in the period but kept it close. Big saves on Richards and Zuccarello to keep it tied at 2. Not as busy that period as he faced four scoring chances against. Game saver with one minute left on Hagelin, unbelievable save, timely save again.

Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers (4) - Great left pad save early on, was more aggressive in the crease on big save on Muzzin. Nice save on Carter before Clifford scores on a bad angle shortside as he is late to seal the post. In the second, he makes back-to-back big saves on a 2-on-1 then stands tall on Muzzin to stay ahead. Doughty goal goes through the seven-hole shortside. He's the difference in the game in the second, as the Kings continue to press with 20 shots. Third period, he was great as well. On the game-winning goal, he gets caught leaning to the glove side a bit and Williams picks the top corner blocker side, not much chance.
