Role players dwell in the shadows of stars, but have a way of finding the spotlight in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Journeyman forward Dominic Moore, who signed with the Rangers in July 2013 after a year out of hockey while caring for his cancer-stricken wife (who he ultimately lost), quietly produced six goals and 18 points in 73 regular season games. In the first three rounds of the playoffs, he filled in ably for injured teammates Derick Brassard and Derek Stepan, skated on three different lines, and tallied seven points. His biggest moment propelled New York to its first Stanley Cup Final in 20 years when he scored the lone goal in a Game 6 win over the Canadiens in the Eastern finals that spared his team a return to Montreal for a dreaded Game 7. Here's a look at some other notable unexpected playoff heroes of the past.
