The Night That Was: Sid Scored and Hockey Happened

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Pittsburgh goes up 2-1 on the Rangers and Anaheim is now heading to L.A. down by two.

Recap:

Pittsburgh Penguins 2 New York Rangers 0

Marc-Andre Fleury has back to back shutouts in the playoffs on back to back nights. This is not a drill. Sidney Crosby finally scored a goal and all is well. Just don't ask Arby about Jussi Jokinen right now. Pens lead the series 2-1. Game four goes Wednesday at 6:30 CST on CBC.

Anaheim Ducks 1 vs Los Angeles Kings 3

The Ducks thoroughly outplayed the Kings, but the Kings had just enough luck (and a good portion of Marian Gaborik) to win. This series moves down the freeway to L.A. for game three. Kings lead the series 2-0. Game three goes Thursday at 9:00 CST on TSN.
