The kids were all right in Calgary as the Flames eliminated Vancouver, and the Blackhawks capped off a wild series against Nashville. The Islanders lived to play another day, while Detroit took a 3-2 series lead over Tampa Bay.
Jiri Hudler, Sean Monahan and Johnny “Hockey” Gaudreau combined for 10 points. They had seven total heading into Game 6, so with the monkey off their backs, they were free to have a little fun on an empty-net goal.
The Chicago Blackhawks ended their first-round series against the Nashville Predators with a wild 4-3 victory.
Corey Crawford was perfect in his place. It was nearly an exact role reversal from Game 1, where Crawford got the boot for allowing three goals on 12 shots. A goalie controversy could be brewing as Chicago heads to the second round.
Corey Crawford on if #Blackhawks’ goaltending situation is back to normal: “What’s normal?”
Fortunately for the hometown fans, their team closed out the game in memorable fashion. As the horn sounded to close out the match, Capitals defenceman John Carlson took one last shot on Jaroslav Halak.
Needless to say, the Islanders were not impressed.
Steven Stamkos led his team in scoring with 43 goals and 72 points in the regular season, but hasn’t recorded a single goal in the post-season and has only chipped in with two assists.
The loss highlighted Tampa Bay’s recent lack of firepower.
The Lightning have just 10 shots on goal half way through this game. Steven Stamkos has been held to one.
The fans at Amalie Arena weren’t very impressed with their team’s performance.
