Three overtimes last night
TOR 4 – TB 3 OT, The Maple Leafs come from behind last night as Awesome Matthews fought Mr. Stamkos, Mr. Samsonov out-dueled Mr. Vasilevskiy in net, Mr. Knies a pleasant surprise, Mr. Rielly, Mr. Marner, and Mr. Nylander contributing offensively, and Mr. O’Reilly blocking, scoring and assisting last minute goals for the tie and OT win.
COL 6 – SEA 4, Seattle scored on their sixth power play at the end of the game when it did not matter as Colorado early in the third period with the game tied three apiece scored twice in 88 seconds for the two-goal lead before tacking on a Happy Net Goal for the eventual win.
NJD 2 – NYR 1 OT, The second-best road team in the regular season needed to be last night and they were as the Devils scored their lone regulation goal on the power play as the Rangers failed on five power-play attempts against Mr. Schmid New Jersey’s 6’ 5” goalie in his first playoff game.
LV 5 – WIN 4 OT, A heartbreaker in Winnipeg after scoring three times on 17 SOG to forge a tie game with 22 seconds remaining in the third period and to survive into the second overtime period only to lose on an unlikely deflection to an open Knights player.
From early this afternoon until late this evening the Islanders, Panthers, Wild, and Oilers must win.
