3. Marc Andre Fleury
Fleury was able to step in after Murray hurt himself minutes before the playoffs started. He ended being a savior in the crease on more than occasion, and came away with a respectable .924 save percentage and 2 shutouts in these playoffs. No matter where he ends up this summer, he’ll be remembered for getting the ball rolling for this 2017 championship team.
2. Jake Guentzel
The spunky forward proved that his regular season was no fluke. As a rookie, he led the NHL in postseason goals with 13. Impressive. His energy served as a spark and when Jake N’ Bake was rolling, it seemed to lift everyone up. If you’re leading your team in goals and you play with Sid, Geno, and Phil, you know you’re doing something right.
1. Sidney Crosby
For the second year in a row the captain was awarded the Conn Smythe. Sid posted 27 points in 24 games, and led the team through back to back seven game series. His leadership skills and offensive production were essential for the Pittsburgh Penguins to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions, and that is why he is number 1.
