Shifts of the Night, Apr. 19, 2010
Capitals 5, Canadiens 1

Eric Fehr not only made the play to set up Brooks Laich's shot, but he also put home the rebound to give the Caps a 3-0 lead with 11:27 remaining in the second period. Fehr got around Marc-Andre Bergeron in the corner before feeding up to Brendan Morrison. As Morrison passed the puck to Laich for a one-timer, Fehr darted to the net. He tapped in the rebound of Laich's shot, ending Jaroslav Halak's night early.



Kings 5, Canucks 3

Dustin Brown gave an all-out effort during the final 48 seconds of the first period. After the Kings won a faceoff deep in the Canucks' zone, Brown generated a great scoring chance and threw his body around with reckless abandon. After a big hit against the boards, the Kings captain skated in front with the puck. It deflected to teammate Jarret Stoll, who had his great scoring chance denied by Roberto Luongo. When the puck rebounded into the corner, Brown threw another big hit, this time on defenseman Alexander Edler.



Boston 2, Buffalo 1

Mark Recchi outhustled Buffalo's Tim Kennedy to set up Boston's game-winning goal with a pass to Patrice Bergeron, whose shot eluded Sabres goalie Ryan Miller. Bergeron took a pass from Dennis Wideman, dumped the puck from the neutral zone and then raced to be in position -- and uncovered -- for the goal that proved to be the game-breaker.
Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
