The Kings get a crucial win at home to claw back into their series against St. Louis, who still lead it 2-1. The Maple Leafs even their series with Boston at a game apiece, stealing home ice away from the Bruins. Bad news for Detroit; in addition to getting drubbed 4-0 on home ice to Anaheim, the Red Wings have also lost Danny DeKeyser for the rest of the playoffs.

Pens looked a little lost when down 2-0 early. Glad they got it sorted out in OT.

As stated, the Penguins take game 3 in overtime despite surrendering a 2 goal lead in the third period, taking a 2-1 advantage in their series against the Islanders. The Blackhawks and Wild are currently tied at 1 in game 3 of that series after one period. Tonight's games are a pair of game 3 matchups between the Senators/Canadiens and Sharks/Canucks.

What an odd and entertaining game by the pens and isles. 3 comebacks. Early and quick goals. Glad the pens came out on top, though!

Ottawa puts a drubbing on Montreal to take a 2-1 series lead with Jean-Gabriel Pageua contributing a hat trick. The Wild claw back into their series against the Blackhawks with an overtime win, cutting the lead to 2-1. The Sharks put Vancouver on the brink with an offensive flurry in the third period, with Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski each registering at least 3 points each for San Jose, who are just one win away from sweeping the Canucks out in the first round.

I'm no Sharks fan by any stretch, but San Jose, what you're doing to Vancouver is just marvelous and, being a Blackhawks fan, almost brings a tear to my eye.

I did make my picks, but I forgot to post them. Here they are in all of their embarrassing glory for you to dissect and poke fun at:

East:
Penguins over Islanders in 5
Canadiens over Senators in 6
Capitals over Rangers in 5
Bruins over Maple Leafs in 4

West:
Blackhawks over Wild in 6
Red Wings over Ducks in 7
Sharks over Canucks in 6
Kings over Blues in 5

Conclusions:

I doubted the Maple Leafs too much.
I gave the Canucks offence too much credit
I thought the Kings would simply rinse and repeat.
I wish I'd said Capitals sweep.

I think that there seems to be a contest to lose the most teeth - isn't that three we've lost in the playoffs alone?

Four games on schedule tonight!

A pair of game 3's are currently in progress, seeing the Bruins up 1-0 over Toronto after one period and the Rangers and Capitals tied at one in the first.

Starting presently is game 4 between Detroit and Anaheim. More bad news for the Red Wings: Justin Abdelkader was suspended two games for his illegal hit in game 3.

Later tonight we have game 4 between St. Louis and LA; the Kings can even the series at 2 with a win, or the Blues can make it a 3-1 advantage.

The Bruins, Rangers, Red Wings, and Kings all pick up wins tonight. The Red Wings once again tie up their series with Anaheim on an overtime winner from Daniel Brunner; the Kings come from behind twice at home to even up their series with St. Louis at 2 games; the Rangers claw back into their series against the Capitals with a 4-3 win at home; finally, the Bruins spoil Toronto's first home playoff game since Stonehenge was built with an easy 5-2 win, now leading the series 2-1.

not making excuses for the penalties the Wings got last time.

That would be interesting if it were true. Except it isn't. Seeing as how both teams are 1-1 at home.

I found a second one. But are you seeing how we're playing? I don't think it's going to happen.

Late update from me tonight, sorry!

The Blackhawks (FUCK YEAH) pick up a 3-0 win in Minnesota to put the wild on the brink of elimination, taking a 3-1 series lead. The Senators also take a 3-1 lead in their series against Montreal with a win at home tonight. The Sharks break out the brooms tonight at the Shark Tank, sweeping the Canucks out of the first round; for the Canucks, it's the second time in as many years being swept in the first round. The big surprise of the day is the Islanders picking up a 6-4 victory over Pittsburgh who falter with some clumsy goaltending, which was their undoing last year; series is tied 2-2, going back to Pittsburgh for game 5.

So I'm just going to throw this out there
The team that's eliminated the Canucks for the last 3 years has gone on to win the cup.
Blackhawks - 2010
Bruins - 2011
Kings - 2012

I feel like boosting some egos tonight when actually I'm just really really happy the Cantpucks got swept.

It was a night filled with overtime games, with 3 of 4 fixtures needing extra time to decide a winner.

The Kings put the Blues on the brink after starting out the series down 2-0 with an overtime win in St. Louis tonight. It was a duel of goaltenders in Anaheim between the Ducks and Red Wings, seeing the home team come away with an overtime win to go up 3-2 over Detroit. The Maple Leafs went up early, but the Bruins came back to force overtime, eventually winning in the extra session to go up 3-1 in that series. The only game to be decided in regulation was a back and forth affair between Washington and New York, seeing the Rangers win at home to even the series at 2.

With today's games over with, the Ducks, Blackhawks, Bruins, Senators, and Kings are all 1 game away from advancing, while the Sharks have already advanced.

Another triple post deal with it etc

The Blackhawks and Senators both clinch series wins tonight with victories over the Wild and Canadiens respectively, while the Penguins put the Islanders on the brink with a home win; goaltending wasn't a problem for Pittsburgh this time around, earning the shutout victory after benching starting goalie Fleury following game 4.

Senators are pretty bad, they got carried by their goaltender.

Well, they are much better on defense than the Penguins in general.

Over the course of the last couple days we've seen the Penguins close out their series against the Islanders in 6 games and the Kings rally from a 2-0 start to win their series over St. Louis in 6 games as well. Tonight tells us who wins between Anaheim and Detroit in a pivotal game 7, while both the Bruins can close out their series with a win. The Rangers pulled off a win at home over the Caps to force a game 7; the home team in that series has not lost thus far.

Actually going to agree with this. Maybe not in 6 specifically, but agreeing regardless.

With the conclusion of tonight's action, all western conference semifinal matchups are now set! Detroit wins game 7 of their series against Anaheim to advance, upsetting the second seeded Ducks in the first round. A pair of game 7's were forced today as well, with Toronto and the New York Rangers both winning on home ice to send their series with Boston and Washington respectively to a final game.

Western Conference Semifinal matchups

1. Chicago Blackhawks vs. 7. Detroit Red Wings
5. Los Angeles Kings vs. 6. San Jose Sharks

Seeing as how we have two game sevens in the eastern conference tomorrow, the only matchup that's been set in stone thus far is 1. Pittsburgh Penguins vs. 7. Ottawa Senators.
