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

You could feel it. You could feel that they were going after each other and trying to win the game for their team.
