1. Martin Biron, Flyers: With his team facing the possibility of an ugly four-game sweep, Biron came up with his best game of the series -- turning aside 36 shots. At least a handful of those saves were of the spectacular variety. The Flyers will need another top-shelf effort from Biron to send this series back to the Wachovia Center for a Game 6.

2. Scott Hartnell, Flyers: The veteran forward set the tone early for the Flyers with more than a few crunching checks on just about anyone wearing a Penguins sweater. And Hartnell wasn't a slouch on the offensive end, notching three helpers in just under 17 minutes of ice time.

3. Jordan Staal, Penguins: The 19-year-old scored both goals for the Penguins. But it was much more than that. Staal, who returned to the team late Wednesday following a one-day absence after the death of his grandfather, was said to have been fighting back tears during the pregame skate. Staal may have been emotionally spent in Game 4, but it didn't show in his effort.
