Justin Williams has been the best player on the ice in Game 5 — and that’s for either team. Every shift it seems like he’s made some sort of impact, whether he’s hitting the post or delivering a big hit or developing a solid scoring chance or simply winning a puck battle.
It’s only right that he’s the one who tied up the hockey game at 1-1 with a goal 3:26 into the second period. His fourth goal of the postseason was assisted by Matt Greene, but in reality it was a pretty solid individual effort on the goal. We now have a hockey game on our hands, and the Prudential Center crowd is considerably more quiet than it was earlier in the evening.
