1. JAROME IGINLA: Remember how good Keith Primeau was in the last series? Calgary's version is Iginla, who scored a short-handed goal that showed his strength, speed and hockey sense. It also broke the Lightning's back.

2. MARTIN GELINAS: The veteran doesn't score a ton, but it seems many of his goals, including series clinchers against Vancouver and Detroit, are big. His goal Tuesday was huge because it gave the Flames a 1-0 lead and allowed them to smother the Lightning for the rest of the game.

3. MIIKKA KIPRUSOFF: The goalie wasn't spectacular, but he didn't need to be. What he was, though, was solid. He made tough saves look easy and challenging saves look routine.
