First Star: Ryan Kesler, C (1 G, 1 A, +1, 7 SOG, 5 Hits, 19:38 TOI)

Kesler seemed to be the only one at times trying to get to the front of the net to create chances. His breakaway with Vatanen in the second period that led to the shorthanded goal was mostly set up by Getzlaf, but it was a great pass from Kesler to Vatanen nonetheless, and a well deserved assist. His goal was a direct result of his desire to be in front of the net as much as possible, and his tip-in goal gave the Ducks life shortly after it seemed the Maple Leafs had put the game on ice.
