Players, coaches, and fans won’t soon forget this night as both teams combined for 17 goals. The Winnipeg Jets ended up beating the Philadelphia Flyers 9-8 in a game that reminds us of a hockey era gone by.
This fight-filled affair started with Brandon Sutter of the Carolina Hurricanes hammering Joe Corvo of the Boston Bruins into the boards while on the forecheck. The big bad Bruins were quick to go off the rails after that, as evidenced in this video. Old-time hockey anyone?
Wow! Chris Neil of the Ottawa Senators absolutely CRUSHES Clayton Stoner of the Minnesota Wild behind his own net. Definitely a top candidate for hit of the year so far. I bet Clayton was living up to his last name after this one.
Tim Thomas stopped 24 shots for his second shutout of the conference finals and Nathan Horton scored the only goal to send the Boston Bruins to their first Stanley Cup since 1972.
Kevin Bieksa scored the game-winning, series-clinching goal for the Vancouver Canucks halfway into the second overtime period on Tuesday night. It was hardly bizarre and hardly a classic, but was good enough to throw British Columbia a party like it was 1994 all over again.
Patrick Marleau got his first point of the series when he scored with 7:47 left in the game and then made a huge defensive play in the final seconds as the San Jose Sharks beat the Detroit Red Wings on their fourth try with a 3-2 victory Thursday night in Game 7 of their Western Conference semifinal series.
Ryan Kesler booked his team a spot in the Western Conference final for the first time since 1994 with an incredible effort in the series finale. He assisted on both Vancouver Canucks goals in the first period in a 2-1 victory to close out the Nashville Predators in six games on Monday.
Milan Lucic tallied two goals, Johnny Boychuk got the go-ahead goal, and the Boston Bruins swept the Philadesphia Flyers in their Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Sean Bergenheim netted two goals and Dwayne Roloson made 33 saves, as the Tampa Bay Lightning swept the top-seeded Capitals with a 5-3 victory in Game 4 on Wednesday night.
