Series MVP: Henrik Zetterberg, LW, Detroit Red Wings
Zetterberg may not have had the best regular season by his own standards, but he's making up for it this postseason. The winger recorded a team-leading six goals and 11 points in Detroit's Conference Quarterfinals win over the Phoenix Coyotes. He registered four multiple-point games, including a hat trick in Game 2 and a three-assist effort in Game 7. Zetterberg also led Detroit with two game-winning goals, notched in Games 2 and 4.
