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.

Tuukka Rask, Bruins (3) - Knuckled down after last game struggles, was locked in, had good rebound control, not much chance on the Mike Weaver goal as there was traffic in front and Thomas Vanek goal was a nice redirection. Good saves on Rene Bourque,Vanek and Max Pacioretty in second period. Vanek's second power-play goal another deflection on power play. Lots of Screens in front of him

Carey Price, Canadiens (3) - Sharp again this game, big saves on Jarome Iginla, Jordan Caron, Patrice Bergeron, Torrey Krug and two ridiculous saves on Milan Lucic and Loui Eriksson. Dan Paille's goal hit Francois Boullion and changed directions. Also had a few posts - Iginla and Krug. Second goal, through a screen, no chance, Third goal is a wicked bounce off the ice in front of him. On the game-winning goal he was late on the push across. Made at least eight to 10 bell saves in this game and was the only reason it was close at all the first two periods

Jonathan Quick, Kings (4) - Put a show on again. His best two saves were on Smith-Pelley, reaction to back door plays. Got help tonight with three posts and an open net save by Alex Martinez. Teemu Selanne's goal was through the body, not his best work. Also found a way to fight through traffic on a big save on Corey Perry; got the big win on the road to lead in the series

Jonas Hiller, Ducks (4) - Played very well. Big saves on Mike Richards, Tyler Toffoli kept the Ducks in it, especially at 2-1. Not much chance on the Gaborik's goals. Game-tying goal was batted out of air and game-winning goal was a back door tip. Looked a bit rusty early on with rebound control and puck handling, but settled in by the 10-minute mark and made a nice save on Drew Doughty.
