Each night during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, former NHL goaltender Jamie McLennan provides his Post 2 Post rankings for every goaltender in action. Each goaltender will receive a score out of five based on their performance.  McLennan awarded strong scores to both Ryan Miller and Jonas Hiller for their goaltending duel in Vancouver.

Canucks 2, Flames 1

HILLER - 4 - Strong game, was a big part of why the Flames were in the game.  He made big saves on Hansen, Sedin, Higgins and Vrbata, not a lot he could do on the goals against.

MILLER - 4 - First goal by Jones was a short side goal that wasn't good, but response saves on Bennett, Gaudreau, Russell and Colborne were outstanding.  He looked comfortable all game and his positioning was good.

 

Lightning 3, Red Wings 2 (OT)

MRAZEK - 2 - Big saves on Johnson, Stamkos in second period, was really good early in the 3rd when Tampa had a push.  Was beaten twice in 1:17 in the third period and surrendered the winner to Johnson early in overtime.

BISHOP - 2 - No chance on Nyquist goal and a bad goal on Andersson.  He had two penalties that did not help his teams cause, was bailed out by his teammates in this one. He has to be better next game as he was not at the top of his game.

 

Capitals 5, Islanders 1

HOLTBY - 5 - Sharp all game long, big saves on Tavares, Okposo and Grabovski. His best performance so far, looks like the goalie we saw all season long.

HALAK - 1 - Not a good game for him, the 5th goal was the worst, short side that finds its way in as he is off his post.

NEUVIRTH - No Rating, short mop up duty.

 

Predators 5, Blackhawks 2

RINNE - 4 - Allows a moldy one to Richards early, big saves on Sharp, Hossa, Kane and Saad, No chance on the Versteeg goal. He was very good with rebounds as usual, and was outstanding handling the puck tonight.

DARLING - 2 - Not sharp tonight, too much movement in his game, struggled with rebounds and got caught on his lateral movement on Forsberg's first goal and on Wilson's as well.
