4. Phoenix Coyotes / 5. Detroit Red Wings
Coyotes regain the series lead with a 4-2 win in Detroit
The big story from this game is Shane Doan. He was injured after tripping over Detroit goaltender Howard and smashing into the boards.
But that didn't stop the Coyotes from winning. It seems like they just can't be brought down.
2. New Jersey Devils / 7. Philadelphia Flyers
Flyers lead the series 2-1 after a 3-2 overtime win
An unexpected hero emerged in overtime.
Marty Brodeur did it all. It was his team that failed him.
And the Flyers still have his number.
4. Pittsburgh Penguins / 5. Ottawa Senators
Pens lead series after a 4-2 win in Ottawa
Still stunned Ponikarovsky scored.
And Malkin scored a pretty goal. And Grandpa Guerin scored on a breakaway.
Then Captain decided to steal the show and get the game-winner.
2. Chicago Blackhawks / 7. Nashville Predators
Hawks even the series 1-1 after a 2-0 shutout win by Niemi
This series may be the most evenly matched. Neither team really outplays the other in long periods.
So it will come down to the Battle Of The Finnish Goalies.
And Niemi won this round.
We were impressed.
1. San Jose Sharks / 8. Colorado Avalanche
Avs lead series 2-1 after a stunning loss for the Sharks in OT
We are unworthy of you and your 50 save shutout.
The Sharks threw everything they had at him but it wasn't enough.
And just as we were getting settled into the living room for a long overtime, Ryan O'Reilly/Dan Boyle scored to win it for the Avs.
