★ Ondrej Pavelec, G, Wpg.: Was especially sharp early in keeping the Jets in a game they could have very well been down 2-zip. A dominant effort when his team needed it most.
★★ Bryan Little, C, Wpg.: Fantastic performance with a goal and an assist as his line finished with six points (Little: three; Blake Wheeler two assists, Andrew Ladd one helper).
★★★ Cory Conacher, F, TB: The best of the Bolts. A legit Calder Trophy candidate scored his ninth of the season.
