Playoffs day 3: Datsyuk wins it for the Wings, Habs and Duck go up 2-0
Detroit Red Wings @ Boston Bruins: 1 - 0
As many of you might know, the Red Wings came out as winners over the Bruins in last night's Game 1 at the Garden. Pavel Datsyuk ripped home the winner at 16:59 of the third period and that was all the Wings needed to go up 1-0 in the series. It was a heavy, plodding and hard-checking game between the two teams, and if it is any indication, it really feels like this one will be going the distance. So take heart B's fans, there's still plenty of hockey left to play.
Montreal Canadiens @ Tampa Bay Lightning: 4 - 1
Thanks for playing, Tampa. Montreal's 4-1 win over the Lightning gave the Habs a 2-0 series lead heading back to the Bell Centre for Games 3 and 4. You never want to say never, but it looks like the Canadiens have this one in the bag already. In net, the Lightning are really screwed, as they've given up nine goals in the two games played. Anders Lindback has given up eight of those. With their starter Ben Bishop MIA due to an elbow injury, Lindback was pegged as the go-to guy for the postseason. He was pulled in favor of Kristers Gudlevski last night. Yeah, they have some serious problems on hand.
Dallas Stars @ Anaheim Ducks: 2 - 3
The Ducks took both games on home-ice, putting the Dallas Stars and Tyler Seguin in a 0-2 hole as the teams head to Dallas. Ryan Getzlaf led the way with a goal and an assist, while Corey Perry and Andrew Cogliano added the other two scores for Anaheim. An errant Tyler Seguin pass missed Jamie Benn at the Stars' blueline, which allowed Perry to swoop in and launch his slapshot that he blew by Kari Lehtonen.
