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 (5) - A goaltending clinic tonight from Quick that started with a not a very busy first period. Quick only faced four scoring chances in the first frame, including a nice one-timer save on Derek Dorsett and two big saves on Mats Zuccarello - one that he creates by himself with a rebound off the glove that he reaches back with his paddle as it hits the post and the other with a terrific blocker save on the power play. He put on a show in the second, though, facing 12 scoring chances in the period, and making huge saves on Derick Brassard (twice), Brad Richards and Martin St.Louis. Quick looked like the 2012 Conn Smythe-winner in that period. The third was more of the same with big saves on Zuccarello, Richards and Marc Staal. Scoring Chances were 22 to 10 for the Rangers, but it was the Jon Quick Show tonight.
Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers (3) - Not a busy game for Lundqvist, but he made a good save on Jeff Carter down the wall blocker-side and only faced two scoring chances in the opening period. He had no chance on the late goal by Carter, as it hit Dan Girardi's skate and changed direction. Lundqvist faced six scoring chances in the second period with two goals against and no chance on either. Both were deflections that he was just unable to get to. Lundqvist faced two tough shots in the third period from Carter and Mike Richards. A tough game to sit and watch when the guy at the other end is playing great and everything that comes your way is a deflection or chance against.
