No. 1 Star: Corey Perry, Anaheim Ducks

Perry had two goals and two assists in the Ducks’ 4-2 Game 1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets. That included two third-period goals, one of which needed a video review for confirmation. He also assisted on goals by Sami Vatanen and Ryan Getzlaf.

No. 2 Star: Petr Mrazek, Detroit Red Wings

The Red Wings goalie made 44 saves as they defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning, 3-2, in Game 1. It was Mrazek’s first postseason start.

No. 3 Star: Jason Zucker, Minnesota Wild

The Wild forward made a great individual effort to open the scoring in Minnesota’s 4-2 win over the St. Louis Blues in Game 1. Zucker’s wraparound goal came at 2:47 of the first.

 

Honorable Mention: Derick Brassard and Ryan McDonagh scored for the New York Rangers as they outlasted the Pittsburgh Penguins, 2-1. … Marc-Andre Fleury had 36 saves in the loss. … Drew Stafford and Adam Lowry had goals for the Jets. … Jason Pominville had a goal and an assist. … Kevin Shattenkirk had two assists. … Pavel Datsyuk had two goals. 

Did You Know?  Perry passed Teemu Selanne for second on Anaheim's all-time playoff assist list (35). Selanne, who began his NHL career in Winnipeg, was in attendance and drew loud cheers when he was shown on the video board. (NHL)

Dishonorable Mention: Jay Bouwmeester was a minus-2. … Steve Ott earned a third-period misconduct. … Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were scoreless. … The Penguins took four first-period penalties. … Valtteri Filppula was a minus-2. … Ryan Kesler drew a roughing penalty from Mark Scheifele in the second period with a classic head snap; the Ducks would later score on that power play.
