Players Under the Most Pressure in the 2014 NHL Conference Final

Pressure. It's everywhere at this point in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Everyone experiences it, but some players bear it more than others.

Those who are relied upon to score goals certainly feel the pressure more than those on the fourth line who are required to throw the body around, not pucks into the net.

Those who are asked to make big save after big save experience it more than goaltenders who are sheltered by excellent defensemen.

Captains and those who log the most minutes feel the weight on their shoulders more than little-used rookies or sixth defensemen.

Here are seven players taking part in the conference final who have more pressure on them than others, at least according to one man's arbitrary and subjective viewpoints. They are not ranked in any particular order, as the pressure to do so was too much to handle.
