Recap:

New York Rangers 2 Philadelphia Flyers 1

Benoit Pouliot scored the eventual winner as the New York Rangers eliminated the Philadelphia Flyers in seven games. This game featured a Daniel Carcillo goal. I think there is a law stating that you will not win a hockey game if you let Daniel Carcillo score a goal. After the game Steve Mason admitted to having a concussion and said he was suffering headaches the day of game four. Good job Flyers, good job.

Colorado Avalanche 4 Minnesota Wild 5 (OT)

Nino Niederreiter had the game of his playoff life and put up three points in the Wild's come from behind victory. It looks like the Wild lost Darcy Kuemper to a concussion after he got kneed in the head by Ryan Suter. Looks like Mr. Universe, Ilya Bryzgalov will be the Wild's goalie for the near future.

San Jose Sharks 1 Los Angeles Kings 4

You know when a good team gets beaten by a good team? That is what happened here folks. San Jose had some terrible shooting luck in the last four games and lost their top defender in Marc-Edouard Vlasic. This is a terrible collapse by San Jose, but LA is an equally good team, so their comeback is not unexpected.
