NHL Playoffs: Grades for Night 29
The Los Angeles Kings are moving on the Western Conference finals. Here are your grades for Night No. 29 of the Stanley Cup playoffs on Tuesday.
|B||The Sharks lost Game 7 on Tuesday night 2-1, and there's probably somebody out there who will continue to bang on the "Sharks can't get it done when it counts" drum. That would be completely idiotic. There is no shame in losing to a better team (which Los Angeles is, even if by a slim margin) and to a goalie like Jonathan Quick, who played absolutely out of his mind on Tuesday night.|
|A||This team looks special. Again. The Kings took care of business in Game 7 to move on to the Western Conference finals with a chance to defend their Stanley Cup. This was a complete performance that featured dominating defense and another stellar performance by goalie Jonathan Quick.|
|A||What else is there to say about Jonathan Quick in the playoffs that hasn't already been said? He was unbelievable in a must-win situation and made highlight-reel save after highlight-reel save. Unbelievable performance.|
|A||Justin Williams continued to add to his Game 7 legacy on Tuesday by scoring both goals in the victory. He's the first player in NHL history to score goals in each of his first four Game 7's. He'll get recognition for that, but he has always been a really good and valuable player.|
