1. Pavel Datsyuk, Red Wings: Too hurt to take faceoffs, Datsyuk's hands were sure enough to dish three beautiful assists and, ahem, single handedly carry the Red Wings to victory and keep their series hopes alive.

2. Niklas Kronwall, Red Wings: With his team down, Kronwall became a force in supporting the attack. He score the first goal for the game for the Wings, making the score 2-1 shortly after the Sharks gad doubled their lead I the second.

3. Ryan Clowe, Sharks: Clowe was again a physical force all over the ice, setting up Joe Pavelski for the 2-0 second-period lead -- thanks to a deft flop pass over a diving Brad Stuart.
