#4 Nashville Predators / #5 Detroit Red Wings
Predators lead series 2-1 after a 3-2 win in Detroit
Shea Weber scored the first goal.
And then Kevin Klein scored a beauty of a goal, one that we were surprised to see out of a defenseman.
And then Pavel Datsyuk does what he does best and steals the puck from an unsuspecting Preds d-man and then scores when Pekka Rinne is looking off. Ridiculous and awesome.
#4 Pittsburgh Penguins / #5 Philadelphia Flyers
Flyers lead series 3-0 after a decisive 8-4 win
One of the longest games we've ever witnessed in some way.
This is all we have to say about this game.
The Pens played right into the Flyers hands and the Flyers ran roughshod over them. It was too easy. Game Four will definitely be a must-watch.
#3 Florida Panthers / #6 New Jersey Devils
Series tied 1-1 after a 4-2 win for the Panthers
This was the first playoff win at BankAtlantic Center for the Panthers. And fans threw rats on the ice in celebration.
Heck yes. Good for them.
Stephen Weiss was a huge part of the win, scoring two goals.
#1 Vancouver Canucks / #8 Los Angeles Kings
Kings lead series 3-0 after a 1-0 win.
Dustin Brown scored the game's only goal. You knew that a one-nothing game would be right in the Kings wheelhouse because that's how they roll.
This game was also full of more controversy when Brown hit Henrik Sedin and knocked the wind outta the guy but you know how it is when it's a star player and the hit looks late.
Still, the Kings are up three games to none and the Canucks have to figure out how to solve Quick and the Kings defense.
Next game is gonna be a doozy.
