Three Stanley Cup Playoff Games Last Night

New York Rangers-4 Boston Bruins-3 Boston leads series (3-1)

Tuukka Rask and the Bruins defense stole this defeat from the jaws of victory with some of the softest goals of all-time which led to Chris Krieder’s Overtime goal to extend the series at least one more game as the unexpected win by the Rangers forces Game 5 in Boston.

Detroit Red Wings-2 Chicago Blackhawks-0 (Detroit leads series 3-1)

The Red Wings in four games have made both the Captain and the Coach lose their minds.  Will they get them back in time to save the series?

Los Angeles Kings-3 San Jose Sharks-0 (Kings lead series 3-2)

Anze K0pitar scores the game winning goal and Jonathan Quick stops all 24 shots he sees in the Kings shutout of the Sharks as the home team has won every game of the series.

Tonight’s Only Playoff Game

Ottawa Senators at Pittsburgh Penguins 6:30pm (Penguins lead series 3-1)

Will Daniel Alfredsson‘s premise be correct? Are the Pens too deep to mount a comeback or will the Senators shock the Pens and force a Game 6 back in Ottawa?
