Conn Smythe Nomination: 5/5/09

Last night's games were a bit of a let down if you were comparing them to Tuesday night's game between the Caps and Pens, but that doesn't mean we weren't graced with some great performances. This one is a no brainer, however, as we give the nod, for a third time, to the man they call Jonas. (Weezer reference!)

Jonas Hiller turned aside 45 of 46 shots last night leading the Ducks to a 2-1 victory and a 2-1 series lead against the reigning Stanley Cup Champs....even though it SHOULD have been 44 of 46 and headed into OT. I hate to admit it but Detroit got screwed. Oh well, makes me laugh. Hiller is making me eat my words though cause I surely did not see him brick walling the Wings the way he has thus far.

Honorable mentions to the Sedin twins for being the Canucks offense and Teemu Selanne for starting to step up.
