The two Eastern Conference finalists could have been determined last night. But they weren't. Neither of them. Although one was close. The other was not.
PHILADELPHIA 4, BOSTON 0 (Bruins lead series 3-2)
The loss of David Krejci, coinciding with the addition of Simon Gagne has flipped the switch and given Philly some momentum. Only twice in NHL history has a team come from 3-0 down to win a series 4-3. But all the Flyers need to do is win 2 more games. The Bruins, on the other hand, look tired, and played without any heart. If they continue to do so, it will be one of their biggest chokes in team history, which is saying something.
MONTREAL 4, PITTSBURGH 3 (Series tied 3-3)
Crosby finally scored in this series. Unfortunately for him and the Penguins, Mike Cammalleri has scored 6 times in this series, including twice last night. Jaroslav Halak stopped 34 shots (M.A. Fleury stopped 21) and pre-rookie (only 2 career NHL games) defenseman P.K. Subban logged 29+ minutes of ice-time. He was +2.
9:30pm: Chicago @ Vancouver - Versus (Blackhawks lead series 3-2)
