Patrick Marleau    W  Sharks



If a 3-1 Game 6 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday was Patrick Marleau's last game with the San Jose Sharks, then he at least made a good final impression. While Marleau will rue a missed opportunity on a breakaway during the second period, he supplied San Jose with some hope via a late goal in the third period. He ended up scoring three goals in the series and he added an assist. It will be interesting to see what his plans are for the future and if he is in San Jose's design moving forward.

Martin Jones    G  Sharks



Martin Jones permitted two goals on 20 shots, as the Sharks were eliminated in six games by Edmonton on Saturday night. Jones allowed two breakaway goals in about a minute during the second period of Game 6. He made some key stops down the stretch, but it wasn't enough as the Sharks could only get one puck behind Cam Talbot. Jones recorded a 1.75 GAA and a .935 save percentage in the postseason.

Oscar Klefbom    D  Oilers



Oscar Klefbom didn't play in the third period on Saturday against San Jose because of an illness. "It's important for us to get healthy before we get to Anaheim," said coach Todd McLellan after the game. The Oilers managed to record a 3-1 win over the Sharks in Game 6 without Klefbom, but his presence on the back end will be needed in Round 2 versus the Ducks.

Leon Draisaitl    W  Oilers



Leon Draisaitl's first career postseason goal set the tone for the Edmonton Oilers' 3-1 win in Game 6 against San Jose. Draisaitl opened the scoring 54 seconds into the second period after he collected two assists in Game 5. He appears to be feeling better after struggling earlier in the series when he wasn't 100 percent healthy. Anton Slepyshev got the game winner and Connor McDavid scored into an empty net to help the Oilers advance to the second round of the playoffs.

Henrik Lundqvist    G  Rangers



Henrik Lundqvist saved 27 of 28 shots in the Rangers' 3-1 win over Montreal in Game 6 Saturday night. Lundqvist surrendered the opening goal just 6:19 minutes into the contest, but that was all Montreal could get by him. This is the fourth time in the first round that Lundqvist has allowed two or fewer goals and the Rangers have claimed all of those games. With that they're going to the second round for the fifth time in the span of six years.

Mats Zuccarello    W  Rangers



Mats Zuccarello scored twice to lead the New York Rangers in a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens in Game 6 on Saturday. Zuccarello had been fairly quiet in the first round series prior to Saturday's contest as he had one goal and no assists in five games, but he came through when the Rangers needed him the most. Thanks in part to his efforts, the Rangers are heading to the second round to face the winner of the series between the Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators. Derek Stepan scored an empty-net goal to seal the game for New York. Kevin Hayes, J.T. Miller, Mika Zibanejad, Dan Girardi, and Ryan McDonagh each registered an assist.

Carey Price    G  Canadiens



Carey Price stopped 20 of 22 shots in Montreal's 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers in Game 6 on Saturday. Price had a strong series, but Henrik Lundqvist ultimately won the tight goaltending duel and Montreal has been eliminated from the playoffs as a result. Price has fallen to 25-31 in 60 career playoff games.
