Vote For The SB Nation NY Player Of The Week

It's Monday morning, which means it's time to vote for the SB Nation New York Player of the Week. Last week, Brian Boyle was the winner. This week, the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils both went 1-2 in their playoff series, the New York Yankees went 4-2, the New York Mets 2-3, the New York Knicks 3-1 and the New Jersey Nets 0-3. Here are the new nominees. Vote now!

↵

Curtis Granderson: On Thursday, the center fielder became the only Yankee to ever hit three home runs while going 5-for-5. Babe Ruth never did it. Nor Lou Gehrig. Nor Joe DiMaggio. Just Curtis Granderson. He wasn't so bad the rest of the week either, batting .400, with 10 hits, four home runs, five RBIs, seven runs and four walks.

↵

Mark Teixeira: It was offense, offense, offense for the Bombers this week, and Teixeira was front and center. He blasted two dingers and drove in six runs in Saturday's unbelievable comeback win, and for the week he had nine RBIs, hit three home runs and a double, batted .391 and scored four runs.

↵

Nick Swisher: Swisher was just as good as Granderson and Teixeira, chipping in on Saturday with a grand slam and six RBIs. In the six games this week, he drove in nine runs, hit .333, belted two homers and three doubles, scored three runs and walked three times.

↵

Mike Pelfrey: Is this really the new and improved Pelfrey or is he just teasing us again? On Saturday, though the bumbling Mets erased the "W" leaving him with a no-decision, Pelfrey threw eight brilliant innings, only allowing one run on six hits, with three strikeouts and one walk. His ERA is down to 2.29.

↵

Carmelo Anthony: No. 7's scoring continues to be the highlight of the Knicks' offense, but he's also playing defense, passing the ball and rebounding (except in the clunker against the Cavaliers). Anthony recorded his first Knick triple-double (35/12/10) in the win over the Celtics, and he scored 33 points (with seven rebounds) and 39 points (10 boards) in the other two wins this week.

↵

Henrik Lundqvist: On Monday night, Lundqvist made 39 saves, and every single one counted as the Rangers could only muster up one goal in the Game 3 win. Unfortunately, he can't pitch a shutout every time, though he almost did again in Game 5, only letting in a Jason Spezza goal. In Game 4, Lundqvist made 28 saves but gave up three goals, including the winner in overtime.

↵

Martin Brodeur: The Devil legend had a similar week as Lundqvist, shutting out the Panthers on Thursday, which was the 24th postseason shutout of his career, passing Patrick Roy for the all-time lead. Brodeur gave up two goals in the offensively challenged loss on Saturday, but he was pulled in Monday's defeat.
