Marc-Andre Fleury's weak game allows Isles in series; the Sens pull out a late comeback and OT win to take a commanding lead over the Habs; Wild lose another goalie...and another game; and the Sharks eliminate the Canucks.
GAME 4: NY ISLANDERS 6, PITTSBURGH 4 – SERIES TIED 2-2 Why New York won: Speed kills and the Islanders are killing it. For all the Penguins skills, New York is putting them back on their heels by playing a north-south game while not getting caught up chasing the puck around in their own end.

An unbelievable goaltending performance gave Ottawa a 1-0 lead over Montreal, while real Caps and Rangers showed themselves in Game 1 and Jonathan Quick gave up another weak, game-winning softie.
Game 1: Ottawa 4 at Montreal 2 Why Ottawa won: It hardly feels fair to say Ottawa won this game. Goaltender Craig Anderson won it singlehandedly.

The Leafs and Islanders both returned to playoff action after long layoffs...and the rust showed. Meanwhile, the Canucks' top players were outmatched by San Jose's.
Game 1: Toronto 1 at Boston 4 Why Boston won: Because, after the Leafs jumped out to a 1-0 lead just 1:54 into the game, the Bruins exploited Toronto’s inexperience – defensemen Mark Fraser and Mike Kostka were abysmal and a combined minus-4 – dominated in terms of puck possession (limiting the visitors to just 20 shots on Tuukka Rask) and wore down a heavily-worked James Reimer (who stopped 36 of 40 shots) with a slew of high glove shots.
