Playoff Fantasy Stars of the Week(s)

...and the crowd goes mild.

Due to a slight detour to Cancun last week, I was unable to operate a computer submit a column, so here's the fortnight edition of your top fantasy performances from April 30 - May13.

3rd star, from the New York Rangers, numero 4, Michael Del Zotto... he actually tied for the second highest point total of any player, including forwards, with 2+4=6 in six games, including two multi-pointers against the Caps. That is some clutch business from a 21 year-old D-man in his first NHL playoffs.

2nd Star, from the Los Angeles Kings, numero 23, Dustin Brown... in a four game sweep of the Blues, Brown played like it was game seven every night. He finished the series with 3+4=7, 18 PIM, a plus-6 and two GWG. Including the regular season, Brown now has 38 points in his last 33 games. Not bad for a dude who has averaged 56 points over his last five seasons.

1st Star, from the New Jersey Devils, numero 30, Martin Brodeur... Marty and Jonathan Quick had identical 4-0 records, with almost identical peripherals (Brodeur's 1.63/.929 vs. Quick's 1.75/.930). But let's give it to Brodeur for being FORTY freaking years old. Besides, Quick gets his own award after the jump.

Dark Horse Pick: Jonathan Quick (LAK) . So where did Quick go in your pools? In the FHS Invitational pool, he lasted until 114th overall and his owner is leading by a mile. Quick has lost only once in ten playoff games, and the Kings are suddenly the unlikely Vegas favorites to win the cup.

Biggest Breakdown: I guess we have to go with Ilya Bryzgalov, who went 0-4 with a very pedestrian 3.08 GAA and .905 SV%. Blame the team too though - Bryz faced at least 30 shots in each of his four losses, and that type of defense just ain't playoff hockey.
