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

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
