The Lightning would tie the game with 39 seconds left and then Brian Boyle would win the game just under three minutes into overtime.

San Jose Sharks 1 @ Nashville Predators 4

Sharks lead series 2 to 1

Predators scored four unanswered to win the game and gave the Sharks their first road loss in these playoffs.

Dallas Stars 1 @ St. Louis Blues 6

Steen and Backes both score twice and the Blues score six(!) unanswered after falling behind early.

Tonight's Game

Washington Capitals @ Pittsburgh Penguins

Kris Letang serves the only game of his suspension tonight for Pittsburgh while Brooks Orpik sits for the second of three games.

Notes:

  • If you haven't seen it already, watch the Thomas Hickey hit on Jonathan Drouin
  • Kris Russell's Stars sit down 2 games to 1 which they need to turn around for the Flames sake
  • Be ready for an entertaining Pens/Caps game
  • Stars allowed four or more goals for the 5th time in last 7 games

Player of the Night:

Alex Steen's two goals in the Blues' big win gives him player of the night honors.
