Two days ago before the Los Angeles/Anaheim game was played I picked PK Subban as the reigning playoff MVP. Probably he was surpassed during the Los Angeles victory in a few hours by Anze Kopitar. Kopitar continues to play well and has an assist within the first minute of today's game. Kopitar is currently at 14 points and that number may continue to grow during today's game. This is a three point lead on anyone else in the playoffs. For such offensive dominance - with very good defensive play as well - Anze Kopitar is my current leader in the Conn Smythe race.
Kopitar is a top player in the NHL. If he can hold on to this Conn Smythe Trophy lead - which would require a significant Los Angeles playoff run - Kopitar would likely establish himself as a top NHL star. He has the talent to make that a possibility.
