In the first round, I picked Sidney Crosby as the early playoff MVP. Since then Crosby has had a mini-slump. he has been held to one point in the last four games. This leads me to pick another playoff MVP. My selection is Jaroslav Halak of the Montreal Canadiens.
Halak is the lone reason that Montreal remains alive in the playoffs. He has a .933 saves percentage and 2.40 GAA so far in the playoffs. He shut the door on the Washington Capitals by allowing only three goals in the final three games of the first round series. That allowed Montreal to make a comeback and win the first round series. Halak’s play has kept Montreal in their second round series against Pittsburgh so far. Pittsburgh leads the series 3-2, which has Montreal on the ropes. Nevertheless, Halak has played so well to be the current playoff MVP and he would likely remain the playoff MVP for a while after elimination were Montreal to lose their next game.
