No. 1 Star: Kyle Turris, Ottawa Senators
The Senators forward played a role in the game-tying and game-winning goals in Ottawa’s improbable comeback in Game 4 against the Montreal Canadiens. Turris picked up an assist on Cory Conacher’s tying goal with 23 seconds remaining, and his presence in Carey Price’s crease was critical on the play. Then, at 2:32 of overtime, Turris scored his second of the playoffs past Habs backup Peter Budaj to give Ottawa a 3-2 win and a 3-1 series lead.
No. 2 Star: Patrick Sharp, Chicago Blackhawks
The Blackhawks forward beat Josh Harding in the first period, and then beat his injury replacement Darcy Kuemper in the second period as Chicago shut out the Minnesota Wild, 3-0 , behind 25 saves from Corey Crawford and 20 blocked shots from the Hawks. Chicago took a 3-1 series lead.
