Throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs, NHL on TSN analyst and former NHL goaltender Jamie McLennan ranks the netminders after each game night.

Number values assigned are out of five with five being the best performance.

Corey Crawford - 5 - Earned the five based on the 10 scoring chances he faced in the fst period. He was the difference in the game as he only allowed one goal in the period as the Bruins barraged the Blackhawks with everything they had. Showed his ability to be mentally strong as his critics constantly focused on his negatives, he proved that he had what it takes to win a Cup. Well done!

Tuukka Rask - 4 - Game-winning goal changed directions, and the tying goal was a back door play, not a lot of chance for him. Was a rock all playoffs long as he constantly gave the Bruins a chance to win. Pushed himself into the elite conversation with his great rebound control and poise. The Bruins are set in goal for many years to come.
