Ottawa Senators 2, Montreal Canadians 0 - Not only did the Sens win a game, but they did so against a fellow playoff team. How amazing.
Pittsburgh 1, Detroit 3 - The Red Wings got revenge for the game 7 loss in last year’s Stanley Cup finals, and opened up another four-point lead on the Calgary Flames. Perhaps putting playoff tickets on sale wasn’t a bad thing after all.
Colorado 3, Los Angeles 4 (OT) - It’s a tight race in the bottom half of the Western conference now, and the LA Kings earned two very important points to try and stay ahead of the pack. The Avs, despite the loss, earned one point to stay two up on the Red Wings.
