Anaheim eliminated Winnipeg with four straight wins in the first round of the 2015 Stanley Cup play offs and now they have two consecutive victories over Calgary in the quarterfinals.
Anaheim 3-0 Calgary (2-0)
17300 home fans got to see Matt Beleskey, Hampus Lindholm and Nate Thompson score one goal each for Anaheim in their second victory in the series against Calgary. Calgary did get some pressure against the Duck’s net but failed to get the puck in. However, two straight games in Calgary awaits. Maybe the Flames can turn this ship around with the home advantage.
New York Rangers 3-2 Washington (1-1)
The battle between Rangers goalkeeper Henrik Lundqvist and Alexander Ovechkin continuous. Ovechkin promised Lundqvist more goals after the first game (”all series, baby, all series”), where Ovechkin score and Capitals won the game with a late goal in the third period. In the second game, Ovechkin scored, but Washington didn’t win the game. Lundqvist did a stable game with a save percentage of 93,8 and Rangers tied the series.
Chicago 4-1 Minnesota (2-0)
Patrick Kane scored twice for Chicago when they got their second win against the Wilds. The game was tight but Chicago’s stars gave them the edge. The other two goals came from Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp. If Minnesota doesn’t win a couple of games at home, Chicago might become their play off ghosts since the Blackhawks eliminated them for two years in a row before this season.
Montreal 2-6 Tampa Bay (0-2)
Tampa Bay is working on their revenge after being swept by Montreal last year. Now they have two away wins and can return home to Florida and try to decide this series at home. Steven Stamkos, who has been struggling with his scoring in this years playoffs, scored one of the goals in Tampa’s 6-2 victory. Swedish defender Victor Hedman also scored one goal.
