Both the Pittsburgh Penguins and Vancouver Canucks avoiding getting swept in a big way last night.
The Pens crushed the Philadelphia Flyers by a ridiculous 10-3 margin. Mind you, the way this series has been played, that score should not come as a total shock to anyone. Even before last night, Ilya Bryzgalov was allowing about 4 goals per game.
Meanwhile, on the other coast, the Cancucks got their first win against the Los Angeles Kings, winning 3-1. Not nearly as striking as the above drubbing, but given how well Jonathan Quick has played, those three goals might as well have been ten.
Finally, the Ottawa Senators tied up their series with the New York Rangers at two games apiece thanks to a dramatic overtime win.
Wouldn't it be something if both conferences top seeds got elimintated?
Mind you, that would not help my Eastern or Western prediction record, but it would be fun to see.
