Cheers to Islanders 2009 sleeper pick Anders Lee, who won the USHL playoff MVP. His reaction at the official site:

"It was a reflection of my teammates..."

That response is no surprise if you remember the Lighthouse Hockey interview with Lee from earlier this season. He gives the impression of a very level-headed kid.

The fact that there even was a fifth and decisive game was a near miracle and the comeback kids did not disappoint before the franchise record crowd and the largest to ever witness a Clark Cup finals game.

The Gamblers dropped the first two games of the championship series at the Resch, 2-0 and 4-1 and were trailing in game three in Fargo by a goal with under a minute to play. With :49 left in regulation, Anders Lee tallied to force overtime and Green Bay won in the third extra session.

The Gamblers won on home ice, overcoming a 2-0 series deficit by taking back two games on the road. Lee scored the tying goal in the final game. His 31-35-66 line during the regular season was the 10th-highest point total in the league, including nine game-winning goals. The 152nd overall pick last summer heads to Notre Dame in the fall.
