NHL Playoffs 2011 (Second Round): Which Players Have to Step It Up Right Now?

In this roundup for Round 2 of the Stanley Cup playoffs, I will examine which players have to step it up for their respective teams. 

Factors such as grit, consistency, experience, playoff production and season production play an in-depth role in figuring out who has to step up their game. This can be the difference between a berth into the conference finals and perhaps further on.

For every team, I will mention one player (sometimes maybe more) that can play a defining role in their teams' success.

Cheers and enjoy!
