Shifts of the Night
Shifts of the Night, Apr. 24, 2010
Blackhawks 5, Predators 4

Instead of calling it a day, the group of Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Patrick Kane, Patrick Sharp and Jonathan Toews found a way to score a shorthanded goal in the final moments of the third period to erase a 4-3 deficit as Kane converted on Sharp's rebound for his third goal of the playoffs.

Penguins 4, Senators 2 (OT)

With a little more than seven minutes left in the third period and Pittsburgh facing the prospect of losing a second elimination game, grinding forward Matt Cooke played a Matt Cooke shift and crashed the net to find the rebound of a Mark Eaton shot and slap it past Ottawa goalie Pascal Leclaire to bring Pittsburgh all the way back from a 3-0 deficit. It was Cooke’s second rebound goal of the night.

Sharks 5, Avalanche 2

Avalanche forwards Paul Stastny and Brandon Yip were pretty quiet through two periods – neither had a shot on goal -- but they came through at 4:51 of the third period and combined to give Colorado a brief 2-1 lead. Stastny sidestepped a check by Sharks defenseman Jason Demers in the right corner and passed to Yip driving down the slot. Yip knocked the puck past goalie Evgeni Nabokov.

Quote of the Day

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
