Anaheim Ducks 4 Detroit Red Wings 3 (3 OT) – Todd Marchant’s first goal of the postseason came at a perfect time: just 75 seconds into the third overtime period in Game two against the defending Stanley Cup Champions. However, if not for the stellar goaltending of Swiss netminder Jonas Hiller, the Ducks would surely have been down two games in the series. Hiller made 59 saves on 62 shots as he handed Detroit their first loss in the playoffs. Hiller has never even played in a double overtime game before because back in Switzerland, they have shootouts. Ryan Getzlaf, Chris Pronger, and Ryan Carter also scored for Anaheim, who leveled the series at one game apiece with this victory.
Carolina Hurricanes 3 Boston Bruins 0 – Cam Ward had an equally fantastic day in net, stopping 36 of 36 shots to earn his shutout in his last four playoff games. Joe Corvo, Matt Cullen, and Eric Staal all scored for Carolina, who also leveled their playoff series at one game apiece. However, check out what happened at the end of the second period:
LaRose’s goal was initially waived off, and after video review, the “no goal” call stood.
