1. R.J. Umberger, Flyers: He concluded a remarkable five-game series with eight goals after netting a pair in tonight's 6-4 series-clinching win over the Canadiens. The Habs couldn't match the effort of the Philly winger, especially on his first goal of the night. After beating Roman Hamrlik to the net and getting off one shot, Umberger went tumbling to the ice. As he fell, he swiped his stick at the rebound offered up by goalie Carey Price, sliding it under the Habs netminder to tie the game at 1. He later beat Price again during Philly's three-goal second-period explosion, just moments after assisting on a Mike Richards tally.

2. Martin Biron, Flyers: Four goals against may not seem like a banner night, but Biron was more than solid in backstopping the Flyers to the win. After allowing Andrei Kostitsyn's screened wrister by him to tie the game in the third, Biron shut the door the rest of the way with a series of calm, controlled stops the rookie goalie Price couldn't match at the opposite end.

3. Mike Richards, Flyers: It was a classic Richards game, as he asserted his presence along the boards and in front of the net. His controversial deflection of an Umberger point blast at 14:02 of the second kicked off a three-goal burst that turned the tide in favor of the Flyers.
