THE SERIES: TIED 2-2
There was a scary moment in Game 4 of this series when Washington's Brook Orpik took a skate blade to the face. Thankfully, he was stitched up and returned to the game.
Detroit is not to be taken for a joke in this series. Aside from Game 2, they've subdued Tampa Bay's high-powered offense, even with backup goaltender Petr Mrazek. Steven Stamkos has yet to score a goal in the series.
The Senators live to play another day. Finding themselves down 3-0 in the series after suffering a pair of devastating OT losses, they eeked out a 1-0 win in Game 4 to send the series back to Montreal. Craig Anderson dropped a 28-save shutout performance, and Mike Hoffman netted the game-winner with 10 minutes left in regulation.
Calgary has pushed the Canucks to the brink after winning both of their games on home ice at the Scotiabank Saddledome. Johnny Gaudreau netted his first NHL playoff goal in the Flames' Game four win...
Ryan Miller will be in net for the Canucks for Game five; Eddie Lack allowed three goals on seven shots and was pulled after the first period in Game four. Lack surrendered four goals as well in Game three.
Winnipeg put up a valiant effort, but the Anaheim Ducks pulled off the series sweep, eliminating the Jets from postseason play. One of the side stories to this series were Winnipeg's raucous fans - who gave the Jets a chilling standing ovation following their Game four loss:
The Blackhawks have had some luck during overtime in this series, winning Game one in 2OT, and Game four in 3OT. The Blackhawks are sticking with Scott Darling, who made an astonishing 50 saves in Chicago's most recent win.
Pekka Rinne hasn't been half bad either when his equipment isn't busy eating pucks.
