R.J. Umberger, Flyers: Philadelphia's first-strike option was at it again, opening the scoring for the third time in this series. Umberger later added an insurance empty net marker, giving him a pair on the night and six in four games against the Habs.

Patrick Marleau, Sharks: It was a performance worthy of the captain's C from Marleau, who scored a shorthanded goal for the second game in a row. Apparently a student of the passing habits of Stars defender Sergei Zubov, Marleau intercepted another one of his cross-ice attempts, took off alone and beat goaltender Marty Turco to tie the game at one, and give the desperate Sharks the spark they needed to bring the series home for Game 5.

Martin Biron, Flyers: The Habs went shock-and-awe on the Flyers, launching 28 shots at Biron through the first two periods in an all-out effort to stop the bleeding and get their series back on even ground. No such luck. Biron, making just his 11th playoff start, ended up stopping 36 of 38 in Philly's 4-2 win over the Canadiens.
