Brown finishes tied with Anze Kopitar for the scoring lead with 20 points.

No. 2 Star: Jeff Carter, Los Angeles Kings

Carter capped off the playoffs with a pair of goals, his third and fourth of the series. He finishes with eight in the playoffs and 13 points.

No. 3 Star: Drew Doughty, Los Angeles Kings

With a pair of assists, Doughty finished a huge playoffs with points in 10 of his final 13 games and 16 points to finish fourth overall in scoring.
