No. 4 Pittsburgh Penguins vs. No. 5 Tampa Bay Lightning
GAME 2: PIT 1 – TBL 5

PITTSBURGH – It was a far different showing for the Lightning Friday night. Marc-Andre Fleury was no longer the impenetrable force that he was in Game 1 as the Lightning lit him up for four goals. Special teams was 2-for-6 against the No. 1 ranked penalty kill during the regular season.

Fleury stopped only 16 shots. The Penguins poured it on Dwayne Roloson, out-shooting the Lightning 14-8 and 14-5 in the second and third periods, respectively.

Eric Brewer, Vincent Lecavalier, Nate Thompson, Martin St. Louis and Mattias Ohlund all scored for the Lightning. Simon Gagne posted 3 assists. Craig Adams scored the lone goal on the power play for the Penguins.

NEXT GAME: Monday at 7:30 p.m.


No. 1 Washington Capitals vs. No. 8 New York Rangers
GAME 2: WSH 2 – NYR 0

WASHINGTON, D.C. – It isn’t the start the Rangers were looking for in this series as they drop their second straight game in the series, this time being shutout by Michal Neuvirth.

The two lone goals scored in the game were by Jason Chimera and Jason Arnott on the power play. They came 1:57 apart in the second period.

NEXT GAME: Sunday at 3 p.m.

GAME 2: VAN 4 – CHI 3

VANCOUVER – The Blackhawks were able to finally get the puck past Roberto Luongo, but it still wasn’t enough. The Canucks got the lead in the game and held onto it until the end.

Alexander Edler and Sedin added two more for the Canucks while Viktor Stalberg and Ben Smith, with two, tallied for the Blackhawks.
