Every night of the Stanley Cup playoffs, TSN hockey analyst and former NHL goaltender Jamie McLennan breaks down each goalies performance. Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers (1) - Rough night for him, uncharacteristic goals against, the Plekanec shot was a soft goal that goes under glove. On Paciorettys, it goes through the body five-hole and Bourques goes shortside and his night is over. Good move by Alain Vigneault to change goalies, Henrik wasnt sharp and it sparked his team to get back into the game. Cam Talbot, New York Rangers (1) - Comes in to stop the bleeding at 4-1. He allows an early goal to Bourque, tries to settle in but is not tested much. The Bourque hat trick goal was the back-breaker as that put the Habs up 6-4 and the game out of reach. Dustin Tokarski, Montreal Canadiens (3) - Two big saves in the first period, one on Richards with a good post play and a great desperation save on Hagelin as it hits the shaft of his stick. Bad goal against Stepan allows them back into it as the Rangers hang around. The second period was crazy, no chance on the Nash goal as it takes a bounce off Gorges stick, and the Rangers continue to press to make it 4-4. Certainly not his fault, but wasnt overly sharp in the second. Came up big in the third, his best work of the game was at 6-4 when he made a big save on Nash while shorthanded, then on Zuccarello late in the game with his right pad. It certainly will help his confidence moving into the next game. Adidas NMD Clearance Sale . Wrights first stint with Milwaukee was on a 10-day contract from March 14-23.

MIAMI -- LeBron James looked groggy, battled the sniffles as he spoke and wore a large bandage Saturday over the bridge of his swollen, broken nose. None of which stopped James Miami Heat teammates from ribbing him about the injury, which could keep him out of Sundays game against Chicago. "Funny guys on this team, Ill tell you," James said, managing a chuckle. "We got a couple of big-nose jokes in there," teammate Chris Bosh said. James sat out practice Saturday, although he shot some baskets and free throws on the side. He said he wouldnt have played if there had been a game, but added he has felt better each day since breaking his nose during Thursdays victory at Oklahoma City. He hopes to improve enough to play against the Bulls, and his availability will be a game-time decision. When asked how his nose felt, James said, "It has been better. Its a little bit of everything -- pain, headaches, whatever. I have to get past it and hopefully get better in the next day. Im definitely not going to rush it." James was to be fitted for a protective mask and will likely wear it if he plays against the Bulls. "Its nothing you want to make long-term," James said. "Its very uncomfortable." James knows from experience. He wore a mask for a few weeks 10 years ago, after he broke his cheekbone hours before his 20th birthday in a game for Cleveland against Houston. James said he doesnt recall missing significant playing time then. "That was a 19-year-old recovering, compared with a 29-year-old recovering," he said with a laugh. "It takes a little bit longer than when I was 19.dddddddddddd" James was hurt in the fourth quarter of Thursdays game when he was struck inadvertently by defender Serge Ibaka on a drive to the basket. He missed the final six minutes, but even with his nose still bleeding afterward, he took teasing for how he looked. Coach Erik Spoelstra said a doctor fixed James nose Friday to "make it look prettier." "You cant be sensitive in this locker room," Bosh said. "Hes still a good-looking guy. Hes still married. I dont think his wife is going anywhere." James sat out one game earlier this season with a groin injury, and the Heat won at Portland despite the absence of their leading scorer. "We want to continue with the theme of no excuses, even without him," Spoelstra said. "Guys are willing, ready and able to step up. We have guys who are clawing to get some playing time." Any absence is unusual for James, who has never missed more than seven games in a season during his 11-year career. "Hes Iron Man," Bosh said. "But sometimes when you have a broken nose, you have to rest a little bit. Hell have to rub some dirt on it and come back healthy." After facing Chicago, the Heat are off until Thursday, when they play host to the New York Knicks. Sundays home game will the first in 20 days for the Heat, who went 5-1 on a trip that spanned the All-Star break. Miami trails Eastern Conference leader Indiana by 1 1/2 games. "Were not really concerned about that," Dwyane Wade said. "This team just wants to continue to play well. Everything else will take care of itself." ' ' '
