To me that is what clutch is, the guy who is just as good if not better when the pressure is on and when people expect it from you.
Those are just good players. Some of their games are conducive to scoring in playoff hockey, and some aren't. "Clutch" is for all intents and purposes a completely unnecessary word mainly linked to effort and to a lesser extent skill.
