Corey Perry scored the decisive goal in overtime against Calgary when Anaheim won game five. The total score was 3-2 to Anaheim who will now face Chicago in the conference final / semifinal.
Game 7 between New York Rangers and Washington
Washington also had the chance to decide the quarter final at home. However, the Rangers got a 4-1 lead in the third period and things didn’t look so good for the Capitals. With 12 minutes to go Jevgenij Kuznetsov reduced the lead and two minutes later Joel Ward scored 3-4. The final minutes became intense for Henrik Lundqvist in the Rangers goal, but after 60 minutes of play they were victorious. A final decisive game seven awaits between the two teams in Madison Square Garden.
The winner in game 7 between NY Rangers and Washington will face Tampa Bay Lightning in the conference final. Tampa eliminated Montreal in game 6 after a 4-1 win. Montreal was the last of the four Canadian teams to make the play offs, hence there is no hope for a Stanley Cup title to the proud hockey nation this year. As a comfort, Team Canada is doing very well in the 2015 Ice Hockey World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic. They won all seven games in the preliminary round and will play against Belarus in the quarterfinal.
