1. Jeremy Roenick, Sharks
Benched for Game 6 by coach Ron Wilson after mustering just three shots in the series, the 38-year-old veteran rose to the occasion of Game 7. Roenick played a part in four of San Jose's five tallies -- counting two goals and two assists -- in the Sharks' series clinching win over Calgary. His four points were the most scored in a Game 7 since 1993.
2. Joffrey Lupul, Flyers
If at first you don't succeed... The Flyers winger was stymied 19 times over seven games by Cristobal Huet, but he made the 20th attempt count. Lupul buried a rebound of a Kimmo Timonen shot past Huet in overtime to give Philadelphia a 3-2 win and punch Philadelphia's ticket to a second round date with the Montreal Canadiens.
3. Alexander Ovechkin, Capitals
The NHL won't get its dream second round matchup of the Capitals and Penguins, but it's through no fault of Ovechkin. Despite being subjected to blanket coverage by the determined Flyers, the Great 8 launched nine shots on net, threw three hits, set up Nicklas Backstrom for the opening tally and then beat Martin Biron with a wrist rocket for Washington's other marker.
