A quick look at last night’s action around the Stanley Cup Playoffs

Ottawa Senators-4 Montreal Canadiens-2 (Ottawa leads the series 1-0)

Down 2-1 going to the third period, the Senators score three times on Carey Price, and Craig Anderson stops 48 Montreal shots to lead the way to a Game #1 road victory.


Washington Capitals-3 New York Rangers-1 (Capitals lead series 1-0)

Alex Ovechkin started the three goal outburst in the 2nd period to lead the Capitals to the win, It was the first loss by the Rangers when  leading  after the first period this year.


St. Louis Blues-2 Los Angeles Kings-1 (Blues lead series 2-0)

This is bizarro world for Jonathan Quick after such a great 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs continues. After the Game 1 gauffe, Barret Jackman scored with 50 seconds left in regulation for the 2-1 win to shock Quick and the Kings again.
