TUESDAY NIGHT

Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.com Goals... you gotta love 'em! The Ottawa Senators stomped the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night 8-4 to go up in the series 2-1. Ray Emery stopped 35 shots for the win, Jason Spezza had 4 assists, Wade Redden had a goal and 2 assists and Dany Heatley had a goal and an assist. After 3 games, Spezza now leads the pool in points, to the glee of 12 teams who picked him up. For Tampa, Pavel Kubina had a goal and an assist and Martin St. Louis added a goal. Antoine Vermette scored Ottawa's 5th goal, so there was no bonus point awarded in the pool.

Quite the spirited affair, eh?? Anyone else catch Chara teach Lecavalier a lesson??? Ha ha ha!

Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.com The Ducks played host to the Flames in Anaheim on Tuesday night and the game was pretty tight until Darren McCarty and Robyn Regehr scored 34 seconds apart to ice the game for the Flames. Regehr added an assist as well in the game to help Miikka Kiprusoff earn his second win of the playoffs. Chuck Kobasew scored the winning goal late in the 2nd period to earn him a bonus point last night. The big scorer for the team though on Tuesday was Kristian Huselius, who had a goal and two assists. Scott Niedermayer was the big duck getting two assists in the loss.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.com It took another double-overtime to settle, but the Oilers have taken a 2-1 series lead in Edmonton over the Red Wings. Despite Henrik Zetterberg's two goal effort and Mathieu Schneider's goal and an assist, the Wings fell to Jarret Stoll's overtime winner, 8:44 in the second overtime frame. Shawn Horcoff recorded 3 assists, Ryan Smyth had a goal and an assist and Dwayne Roloson earned the win for his 44 save effort.

Steve Yzerman left last night's game with a sore back. 7 teams in the pool are now a bit concerned.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.com The San Jose Sharks brought the Predators home to show them what a little home-cooking can do and ushered them through a 4-1 win on Tuesday. Christian Ehrhoff had 3 assists (which 2 teams registerd), Tom Preissing had 2 assists (for 4 teams), Patrick Marleau had 2 goals (for 7 teams) and Vesa Toskala recorded points 5 & 6 with the win (for no teams). Steve Bernier had the winner for San Jose, so no bonus point was awarded. Kimmo Timonen recorded the only Predator point in the evening.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT

Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.com Jaromir Jagr's return couldn't have been any less of a help to the Rangers hopes of continuing on in the playoffs. Jagr registered nothing, while Martin Brodeur claimed his 31st career post-season shutout (2 behind Patrick Roy all-time... go Marty!). If the scoring sheet to the game is any indication, it looked like a pretty lacklustre game. Jamie Langenbrunner scored the winner for the bonus point and added an assist on Wednesday. Patrik Elias also had a goal and an assist in the 3-0 win for the Devils, who now lead the series 3-0.

The Rangers hopes are dwindling fast as are teams with Rangers on their squad. In the three games thus far in the series, the 12 Rangers in the pool have a combined total of 4 points.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.com The Carolina Hurricanes have some more life in them after Eric Staal delivered the OT winner against Montreal on Wednesday night. The 'Canes tied the game up on a Rod Brind'Amour goal halfway through the third to send it to overtime. Cam Ward picked up his first post-season win in his first career start, while Bret Hedican had two assists for the 'Canes in the victory. Michael Ryder & Sheldon Souray both had assists on Richard Zednik's goal in the second period.

The biggest cause for concern though is the loss of Saku Koivu who got caught near the eye with a Justin Williams stick. There is no real indication of how bad the injury actually is, but he was taken to hospital for pre-cautionary measures. There is only one team who picked Koivu, Les Mascouches, who will probably be most concerned in the pool. For Hurricane supporters in the pool, the winds of change may have been blown through the series as 'you can't let the Hurricanes taste the victory,' as per Don Cherry's wise words after the game.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.com Peter Forsberg had a pair of goals (including the winner) and an assist to put the Flyers back in the series against the Sabres in Game 3. Robert Esche got the win for Philly last night and Simon Gagne had a goal and an assist as well. Derian Hatcher also was able to pick up his 2nd assist in the series as the only other pool point for the Flyers last night. Ales Kotalik scored the only pool worthy goal and Maxim Afinogenov had his first 2 assists of the playoffs last night as well.

The series will go at least five games now that the Flyers have made the series 2-1 for Buffalo and Game 4 will go on Friday night in Philly. J.P. Dumont was knocked out of the game with a rib injury after Denis Gauthier sticked him in the mid-section late in the 2nd period. Dumont, a pick of 3 teams, will hear today what his condition is for Game 4.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.com The good ship Dallas is sinking. The Stars just can't find a way to beat Jose Theodore and the Avalanche in this first round of the playoffs. Theodore recorded his third win of the playoffs making 19 saves in the effort. Alex Tanguay was the bonus point collector with the OT winner and he added another goal and assist for a big 4-point night. Joe Sakic had a goal and an assist and Andrew Brunette had a goal as well for the Avalanche as they've stormed to a 3-0 series lead. The Stars actually scored three goals in the loss, but Sergei Zubov had the only pool counter, while Brendan Morrow had a pair of assists and Jussi Jokinen & Mike Modano each counted an assist for themselves.

Game 4 goes on Friday where Marty Turco will try and stave off elmination in the Dallas net.

Re: Ducks vs. Flames

Although I love Scotty, don't you think the big duck of game 3 would have been Francois Beauchemin a rookie who scored 2 goals in a playoff game. I think it's some kind of record.
