Frederik Andersen G ANA 7 Hrs
Anaheim goaltender was chased by the Stars on Wednesday after he allowed four goals on 25 shots in a 4-2 loss.
Andersen was lifted midway through the third period and replaced by Jonas Hiller, who faced only one shot in his relief appearance. It's anybody's guess who will be between the pipes for Anaheim in Game 5, as Andersen, Hiller and John Gibson are all in the running for the opportunity.

Marc-Andre Fleury G PIT 8 Hrs
Marc-Andre Fleury won't soon forget the difficulties he encountered in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss in Columbus in Game 4 of their first round playoff series.
Fleury turned away 42 of 46 shots in the game, which is respectable on its own, but his misplay of a puck behind his net with under 30 seconds to play in the contest led to Brandon Dubinsky's tying goal before Nick Foligno completed the nightmare with the overtime winner. He'll get a chance to redeem himself when the series shifts back to Pittsburgh for Game 5.
