NHL Playoffs 2011: Who Will Shine in Overtime?

Alex Ovechkin and Patrick Marleau lead all postseason players with three overtime goals during the regular season. Ovechkin is ranked first for having more game-winning-goals (11) than Marleau's nine.

The first round of the 2011 NHL Playoffs begins Wednesday night, which include some excellent matchups and some even better questions.

Will the Canucks be able to hold of the defending champion Blackhawks? Can the Capitals hold off this year's Eastern Conference 8th seed? Can Corey Perry keep the Ducks rolling into the postseason? Will the Penguins find playoff success without Sid and Geno?

The list goes on. 

Regardless of whether or not these series will be lopsided or evenly played out, chances are, there will be some great first round games that won't be decided within the first 60 minutes of regulation.

Therefore, I have ranked each playoff contender based on their overtime win percentages, and have also included each teams leading overtime scorers.
