#2 San Jose Sharks / #3 Detroit Red Wings
Sharks lead series 2-0 after a 2-1 win
The Sharks got two goals from their defense, one of whom you would never guess actually knows what offense is (we're looking at you, Niclas Wallin).
So, this is the Niemi everyone thought would show up. It's nice to see him be dominant over a team that is really good.
The Finnish Fortress.
The penalty kill, a very important part of the play offs, was nearly perfect, only letting in the Zetterberg goal in the third.
#1 Washington Capitals / #5 Tampa Bay Lightning
Bolts lead series 2-0 after a thrilling 3-2 win in OT
It only took six minutes into the overtime period for the game to be decided. Vincent Lecavalier doesn't miss when he's in that close.
What a pass from Teddy Purcell.
Alex Ovechkin tied the game up late in the third and it looked like the Capitals had all of the momentum heading into overtime.
But that overtime is a bitch and it just wasn't to be for the Capitals who did an awful job of defending home ice.
