Friday's playoff games gave us a San Jose Sharks blowout and an overtime win from the upstart Carolina Hurricanes. But Saturday gave us more drama, with both home teams losing and each series tied at 1-1.
Here are the results from Saturday's games.
Dallas holds on for 4-2 win
In the Stars' first second round appearance since the 2015-16 season, Dallas came away with the win thanks to rookies Roope Hintz and Miro Heiskanen. Hintz had a three-point night, including a between-the-legs feed to Heiskanen for the game-winning goal.
The Blues battled back to make it 3-2 with Jaden Schwartz tip in front of the net.
Calder Trophy finalist Jordan Binnington came up with 31 saves, but Jamie Benn sealed the win for Dallas with an empty-net goal. Hintz's three-point night makes him the youngest Dallas Star to complete such a feat.

Columbus gets 3-2 victory in double overtime
The last double overtime game the Blue Jackets played in was Game 3 against the Capitals last season, a loss that catapulted the Caps to their first ever Stanley Cup in Franchise history. This time, the Jackets wouldn't be denied.
The Jackets were down by a goal twice, thanks in large part to Charlie Coyle's continued playoff dominance. He's scored three goals on three consecutive shots and had an assist on David Pastrnak's goal in the third period.
But Artemi Panarin provided the bulk of the scoring for Columbus, with two goals on the night to tie the game at two.
Trade deadline acquisition Matt Duchene provided the overtime winner off a Panarin blast from the point.
Duchene's goal makes him the second Jacket to score a multi-overtime winner in franchise history.
Matt Duchene is the second player in @BlueJacketsNHL history to score the winner in a contest that required multiple overtimes, joining Matt Calvert in Game 2 of the 2014 First Round (4-3 2OT W at PIT). #NHLStats #StanleyCup pic.twitter.com/mN322RV1Yk— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) April 28, 2019
