Victor Hedman and Duncan Keith are considered the favorites to win the Conn Smythe.
Tyler Johnson has cooled off, and barring a big run from the other big names in the final three games, a defenseman could win the honor for the first time since 2007. Keith and Hedman are both logging the most minutes for their respective teams, and they are 1-2 in plus-minus. In the playoffs, Keith has 20 points with 18 assists, while Hedman has 14 points, 13 of which are helpers. Both also have been exceptional possession players. "In a lot of ways, yeah, (Hedman) is a guy like Duncan," Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said. "He makes, more times than not, the players he's out there with better. He's a catalyst when he's in his own zone or the offensive zone." Jun 13 - 2:15 PM
