MIIKKA KIPRUSOFF

SHOTS FACED: 24 SAVES: 23

COMMENT: The ex-Sharks backup showed why teammates credit him for their success. He saved every shot but one and even got a piece of Martin St. Louis' goal that went in off the left post.

NIKOLAI KHABIBULIN

SHOTS FACED: 19 SAVES: 15

COMMENT: The postseason league leader in goals-against average (1.65) and save percentage (.939) entering the game, like his teammates, was not stellar. Four goals are not typical.
