Teez Tabor Youth Jersey Goaltending. Two Vezina Trophy finalists in a second-round matchup? This is going to be fun. Logic says go with Pekka Rinne. He shouldered the load in last year’s Stanley Cup Final run. He’s a four-time Vezina finalist. He’s made the playoffs in seven different seasons. But it’s 24-year-old Connor Hellebuyck who stole the show in the first round with a .924 save percentage, 1.93 goals-against average and two shutouts. We have to go with the hotter hand.

Eakin started the scoring barrage when he deflected Brayden McNabb’s wrist shot from the point past Jones 4:31 into the game.

Marchessault made it 3-0 when he fired a shot from inside the circle past Jones, notching his first career playoff goal. Tuch capped the scoring in the opening period when he sliced through four defenders, made a swift move to his forehand for a wrist shot that beat Jones for a power-play goal.
McCown, 38, is accustomed to being a stopgap QB in the NFL, so this situation in New York shouldn’t be an issue for him. He’s never been considered the guy for any of the eight teams he’s played for though he’s played in 95 games and made 73 starts since being picked in the third round of the 2002 draft.
