No. 1 Star: Matt Fraser, Boston Bruins

In his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut, Fraser scored the overtime winner in a 1-0 Bruins victory over the Montreal Canadiens. But it was more than just the big goal. He and his line dominated Montreal. (It helps that they were matched up against Mike Weaver and the battleship that is Douglas Murray, but still.)

No. 2 Star: Tuukka Rask, Boston Bruins

Rask's been a question mark for the Bruins, but he was flawless in Game 4, making 33 saves for the shutout win.

No. 3 Star: Jeff Carter, Los Angeles Kings

His Kings lost, but Carter did his part, scoring a power-play goal and contributing an assist on a late tally to make it a 3-2 finish.

Honorable mention: Matt Beleskey flipping Drew Doughty into the bench was fun:

Carey Price made one more save than Rask, but he faced two more shots. His 34 saves weren't enough for Montreal, but they should have been, and it's tough to blame him on the game-winner. This was another incredible performance... Teemu Selanne, who is awesome, scored for the Ducks.

Did You Know? Anze Kopitar has a point in all 10 of the Kings' postseason game. Absurd.

Dishonorable mention: Corey Perry had a chance at the empty-net to make it 4-1 for the Ducks, but his stick broke on the shot attempt. The Kings turned the puck up-ice and scored.
