Bryce Salvador Ties The Game, Continuing His Offensive Post-Season Odyssey

Bryce Salvador had no goals and nine assists playing the full complement of 82 regular season games in 2011-12. With his tiebreaking goal in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals, he now has 14 points in the playoffs, including four goals.

Salvador took a mere harmless wrister and had Slava Voynov and David Clarkson trafficking in front. The puck appeared to go off of Voynov and past Jonathan Quick to make it 2-1 New Jersey.

Salvador is now tied for the lead in scoring among defensemen with Los Angeles' Drew Doughty at 14 points. Surely, Doughty's offensive contributions could be counted on in the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, but Salvador's are a total surprise.
