The Morning Skate: News from around the rinks

Complete Bracket & Schedule

A look at news from around the league...

Tonight's Games

No. 6 Boston Bruins at No. 7 Philadelphia Flyers, 7 p.m. (Bruins lead 3-0)

• Facing the disgrace of a series sweep on their home ice, it would be surprising if the Flyers didn't find a way to win at least one game. The sweep-avoiding win seems like a fairly common phenomenon. [ Philadelphia News/Inquirer ]

Simon Gagne practices for Flyers, might play Game 4. [ Philadelphia News/Inquirer ]

• With David Krejci hurt, Bruins have a hole at the center position. [ Boston Globe ]

No. 2 Chicago Blackhawks at No. 3 Vancouver Canucks, 9:30 p.m. (Blackhawks lead 2-1)

• As the heroes seemingly change every night for the Blackhawks during the playoffs, goalie Antti Niemi has emerged as the indispensable constant. Not bad for an inexperienced goalie who has been thrust into playoff spotlight. [ Chicago Tribune ]

• Several Blackhawks have fond memories of Vancouver Olympics. [ Chicago Tribune ]

• Changes coming to Canucks roster as team is looking for a win. [ Vancouver Province ]

Off-Day Teams

No. 1 San Jose Sharks at No. 5 Detroit Red Wings (Sharks lead 3-1)

• Red Wings respond to challenge by scoring ... and scoring ... and scoring. [ Detroit Free Press ]

• Sharks' Ryane Clowe says easy to forget loss with series lead. [ Detroit Free Press ]

• Sharks' lack of focus brings memories of 2006 when they lost to Edmonton. [ San Jose Mercury News ]

No. 4 Pittsburgh Penguins at No. 8 Montreal Canadiens, 7 p.m. (Series tied 2-2)

• Penguins' Stars, who didn't play like much, are the ones to blame. [ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ]

Tomas Plekanec says its time for the Canadiens to use fan advantage. [ Montreal Gazette ]

Three Stars: April 27

By Erin Brown

First Star: Jaroslav Halak, Montreal Canadiens

With his 53-save effort, Halak forced a Game 7 against the Montreal Canadiens. The netminder also set NHL records for most saves in a regulation playoff game when facing elimination and a new team record for most saves in a regulation playoff game.


Second Star: Mike Cammalleri, Montreal Canadiens

Cammalleri finished with two goals and an assist in Montreal's 4-1 win over Washington. The winger could have registered a hat trick with an empty-net goal at the end of the game, but in an unselfish act, dished off to teammate Tomas Plekanec instead.


Third Star: Antti Niemi, Chicago Blackhawks

Niemi stopped 19 shots over the final two periods to preserve a series-clinching, 4-3 victory.


Honorable Mentions

  • David Krejci , Boston Bruins: two goals, one assist
  • Jonathan Toews , Chicago Blackhawks: one goal, two assists
  • Tomas Plekanec , Montreal Canadiens: one goal, one assist
