Stars of the Week:

Sidney Crosby

Currently 3rd in overall playoff scoring, Sidney had been a force all post season and is a big reason why his Pittsburgh Penguins are up 2-1 in their Second Round series versus Ottawa. Aside from his hat trick performance in Game Two, Crosby has been strong in faceoffs and been solid on the defensive end for Pittsburgh.   

Zdeno Chara

Zdeno has been a absolute beast in these playoffs as he is first in defense scoring with over a point-per-game this postseason. His physical play and ability to keep opponents to the outside with his reach is one of the reasons why the Boston Bruins have a chance to make quick work of the New York Rangers.  

Jeff Carter

Some nights all the Los Angeles Kings need is one goal to come away with the victory, and Jeff Carter has been their main source of those all important goals. If he continues with his strong play, the Kings are legitimate contenders to repeat as champions.

Forward Line 2 - Patrick Marleau (San Jose Sharks) – Patrice Bergeron (Boston Bruins) – Patrick Sharp (Chicago Blackhawks)
