Coyotes 5, Red Wings 2


With a chance to restore a two-goal lead, the five-man unit of Radim Vrbata, Robert Lang, Taylor Pyatt, Keith Yandle and Adrian Aucoin did a tremendous job of keeping the puck in the Red Wings' end of the ice -- despite losing the faceoff -- and converted when Vrbata took a pass from Lang and ripped it past Jimmy Howard to give Phoenix a 3-1 lead with 9:51 left in the second period.



Canucks 4, Kings 2

Daniel Sedin's winner came off a great passing play involving -- who else? -- his brother Henrik. Daniel fed a cross-ice pass to Henrik, who set up Mikael Samuelsson for a one-timer. But Samuelsson's stick snapped on the attempt. Daniel, though, dug the puck out and beat Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick in the final minutes to put the Canucks on top 3-2 and help send the Canucks to the second round.



Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
