Daily Playoff Rundown - 4/19/10

by chewy 19. April 2010 08:35

4 Stars

#1 - Craig Anderson (G - COL) - Anderson stopped a whopping 51 shots en route to a huge overtime shutout victory.


#2 - Anti Niemi (G - CHI) - The Hawks went back to the rookie in net after a poor showing in game 1.  He rewarded them with a 23 save shutout to tie up the series with Nashville.


#3 - Daniel Carcillo (F - PHI) - Carcillo scored the biggest goal of his career last night, putting one behind Brodeur in overtime.  He had a 2-point night, as he contributed with an assist earlier in the game.


#4 - Sidney Crosby (F - PIT) - Crosby once again showed why he may be the best hockey player in the world.  He muscled his way across the goal, through half the Senators lineup, in route to his 2nd goal of the playoffs.  He leads the league with 7 points this postseason.


Injury Update:

  • Jordan Leopold is still day-to-day after the pounding he took from Andy Sutton
  • Shane Doan left Sunday's game with an upper body injury after running into Jimmy Howard and did not return.  It's hard to imagine the Coyotes going anywhere this post-season with their captain on the sidelines.
  • Patric Hornqvist missed the game for the Preds with an upper-body injury
  • Milan Hejduk left the game after colliding with teammate Paul Stastny
  • Robert Lang returned to the Phoenix lineup last night after missing the past month


Player Notes:

  • Evgeni Malkin has scored a goal in all three games for the Pens
  • Ilya Bryzgalov made 29 saves for the big win over Detroit
  • Wojtek Wolski has scored in all three games for Phoenix
  • Brian Rolston scored twice in a losing effort for the Devils
  • Dan Boyle had the play of the postseason so far, as he put the puck in his own net in overtime.  Nabokov had pitched a shutout into overtime, but wasn't prepared for the shot from his own defenseman.
  • Dany Heatley was benched by Sharks for Game 3, with no explanation
  • The Caps still haven't announced their plan for a starting goalie in Game 3.
