First Star: ★ Drew Doughty, Los Angeles Kings

Doughty scored his first career playoff goal and recorded three assists. His four points tied a Kings team record for most points by a defenseman in a playoff game, set by Paul Coffey in 1992.

Second Star: ★ ★ Michal Handzus, Los Angeles Kings

Handzus scored two power play goals a little more than eight minutes apart in the second period, and also registered an assist in Los Angeles' 5-3 win over Vancouver.

Third Star: ★ ★ ★ Tuukka Rask, Boston Bruins

The regular season goals-against average and save percentage leader, Rask closed out Patriots Day in Boston with a 32-save effort, including 12 in the final period.

Honorable Mentions

Goat of the night: Jaroslav Halak, Montreal Canadiens

For as good as he was in Montreal's Game 1 win, he's been equally as bad over the last two games. Monday night, Halak allowed three goals on six second period shots and was given the hook.
