Daily Playoff Rundown - 5/24/10

by chewy 24. May 2010 10:03


4 Stars

#1 - Dustin Byfuglien (F - CHI) - Byfuglien is getting used to being the hero in Chicago.  For the third time in four games, he tallied the game winning goal.  Byfuglien leads the Hawks with 8 goals in the playoffs.


#2 - Antti Niemi (G - CHI) - He only faced 18 shots on the night, but was good enough on 16 of them to help close out the series with a sweep.


#3 - Patrick Marleau (F - SJ) - Say what you will about Thornton and Heatley, but clearly no blame can be placed on upcoming UFA Marleau for the Sharks failures.  He scored a critical short handed goal to tie the game up in the second period.  Marleu finished the playoffs with 8 goals in 14 games.


#4 - Kris Versteeg (F - CHI) - Versteeg finished the night with 2 points, assisting on one and adding an empty netter to close out the scoring.


Injury Update:

  • Duncan Keith lost some teeth in game 4, but returned almost immediately, not missing a shift
  • Andrew Ladd played just 2 minutes on the night after leaving the game.  No word on his injury.


Player Notes:

  • Evgeni Nabokov played a decent game and kept the Sharks in every one of their 4 losses.  He finished the playoffs with a respectable 2.56 GAA, having possibly played his last game in Black and Teal, as he'll be an unrestricted free agent in a few weeks.
