Two out of three home teams won
NYI 3 – CAR 2, Goaltending brings New York home for game six while Carolina was out of sync having a goal called back, and the Hurricane’s Mr. Aho took a bloody shot off his jaw/mouth and while the puck was dropping the Islanders Mr. Nelson smacked it out of the air into the net.
EDM 6 – LAK 3, The Kings’ two victories are in overtime and if they do not keep the score close in Los Angeles for game six, the Edmonton Oilers scoring machine will skate over them into the next round.
DAL 4 – MIN 0, Dallas wins game five in Texas to push Minnesota to the brink of elimination and perhaps The Flower will be in the net when the Wild endeavor to win game six at home this Friday night.
Boston has Florida skating on thin ice and the Bruins at home with their Captain returning from injury could be the end for the Panthers.
If Colorado wants to earn their second consecutive Stanley Cup they need to win game five at home tonight versus Seattle, no excuses, or the Kraken will be in the envious position to be able to eliminate the defending champs at home.
