The Cup Baby – Day 19

In Hockey Hits on May 4, 2010 by geespotting

Alright…Sunday night…and two more series in flight:


(8)  MONTREAL  3  AT  (4)  PITTSBURGH  1.


…Well, looky-looky, the Habs evened the series, and it was another strong effort from Jaroslav Halak to guide the way. Montreal fell behind on a Matt Cooke goal…eventually evened the game…and then rode the back of Halak until an opportunity to win the game came their way, and it did with this highlight reel goal by Mike Cammalleri:

Pittsburgh kept pressing, but, couldn’t beat Halak. While trying to score, the Pens continued to take chances, and of those chances resulted in a Sidney Crosby mistake, and another Cammalleri goal to seal the deal. The Bell Centre will be rockin’ when game 3 goes Tuesday!

STARS 1. Jaroslav Halak, MON. 2. Mike Cammalleri, MON. 3. Matt Cooke, PIT.


(5)  DETROIT  3  AT  (1)  SAN JOSE  4.


…It was deja vu all over again in the score, as well as the Sharks hero, Joe Pavelski. Once again, Little Joe had 2 goals and an assist to pace San Jose to a game 2 win. Unlike game one, however, the Wings were in this one from the get-go, despite the fact they were penalized 9 times in this one! Jimmy Howard played great to keep Detroit in this one, but, it was Big Joe, who finally scored, and broke the third period deadlock:

Game 3: Has to be or die for Detroit at the Joe, vs. the 2 Joes!

STARS 1. Joe Pavelski, S.J. 2. Pavel Datsyuk, DET. 3. Dany Heatley, S.J.

…On Monday, the Canucks look to steal another in Chi-Town, while Philly tries to even things up in Beantown.
