Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Michael Traikos of the National Post,
As we prepare for the second round, here are two starting lineup’s worth of players that have stood out so far:
Claude Giroux, Right Wing, Philadelphia
The reason the Flyers were able to trade captain Mike Richards and Jeff Carter last summer was because they had Giroux. He might not have been an NHL star back then, but there is no doubting he is amongst the best in the league now after a 93-point regular season and a playoff-leading six goals and 14 points against the Penguins.
Andy McDonald, Left Wing, St. Louis
Ok, hands up, who picked McDonald in their playoff pool? Not even Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock could have predicted that a player who missed 57 games this season with head and other injuries would be tied for third in scoring with four goals and four assists.
