In Hockey Hits on May 16, 2010 by geespotting

The latest from a Round Two Tuesday Doublshot of action:

EAST CONF.

(4)  PITTSBURGH  2  AT  (8)  MONTREAL  0.

– PENGUINS LEAD SERIES 2-1.

…Game 3 in Montreal was at it’s best during the pre-game festivities! This was a bore-fest. You might think that it was a defensive minded battle, but, a tight game that never really opened up. The ice was broken when Evgeni Malkin scored early in the third on the PP to essentially win this one. Here is a look at the highlights of game 3:

Is game 4 a must win for the Habs? If they lose, can they actually pull off another 3-1 comeback like they did like the Caps? We’ll see!

STARS 1. Evgeni Malkin, PIT. 2. Marc-Andre Fleury, PIT. 3. Jaroslav Halak, MON.

WEST CONF.

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

– RED WINGS LEAD SERIES 3-0.

…A big start for the Wings on home ice, as they jumped out to a 2-0 lead. Through 2, it was still the Wings up by a pair, but, the Sharks battled back to tie the game, and force an overtime…and overtime that the Wings would have to win:

Ah-hah! A Shark ot winner, and not from a player named Pavelski. “Big” Joe Thornton took over the game midway, and set up that beaut from Marleau. If the Sharks are to win the Cup, they will need that contribution from the big boys, and tonight they got it take a commanding 3-0 series lead.

STARS 1. Joe Thornton, S.J. 2. Henrik Zetterberg, DET. 3. Patrick Marleau, S.J.

– On Wednesday, the Canucks look to go up in their series with the Hawks, while the Flyers look to get into their series with Boston.
