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
'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.
