Mason outplayed the great Henrik Lundqvist in three of his four playoff starts after returning from an upper-body injury. He was great in Game 4 and Game 6 victories, then way better in this Game 7 defeat.

2. JASON AKESON: With the Flyers in big trouble down 2-0 in the third, the rookie made it a one-goal game by scoring from the right circle at 4:32 after his first shot was blocked.

3. KIMMO TIMONEN: Possibly playing his final NHL game, Timonen had three blocked shots. One of his best Game 7 plays was riding Rick Nash off the puck to prevent the Rangers from getting a scoring chance on a 2-on-2 rush.

4. JAKOB VORACEK: Right wing once again did a good job using his speed and passing ability to create offense. He also had two shots on net plus a hit. During a scoreless first period, Voracek won a puck battle behind the net that led to Vincent Lecavalier putting a hard shot on net.

Veteran defenseman finished a rough series by having a mistake-filled Game 7. The worst of Coburn in this one occurred when he was next to Daniel Carcillo at the net and did nothing to prevent the tough-guy winger from scoring the opening goal.

2. ANDREW MCDONALD: Defenseman had a game-high three giveaways, one of which led to the Rangers scoring their second goal.

3. ZAC RINALDO (photo above): Hitting is his game, and after keeping it clean all series long, Rinaldo gave the Rangers early momentum by being overly aggressive. The first power play game went to the Rangers after Rinaldo ran Brad Richards into the boards and was called for interference.
