    Both the Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning win their Game 4s to take 3-1 series leads.

    Sidney Crosby and the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions pitched a 5-0 shutout over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 4.

    Crosby and Phil Kessel each led the Penguins with a goal and assist each and Matt Murray stopped all 26 Flyer shots to record his second shutout of the series. Crosby has five goals in the series.

    The Penguins can close it out on Friday inside PPG Paints Arena.

    Meanwhile, the Bolts split a pair of road games after beating the New Jersey Devils 3-1 in Game 4 to head home up 3-1.

    Nikita Kucherov had two goals to take his postseason tally to four, but it was J.T. Miller who stole the show with three points on a goal and two assists.

    Cory Schneider had 34 saves in a losing effort for the Devils.

    The San Jose Sharks complete their revenge playoff series win against the Anaheim Ducks.

    Peter DeBoer and Team Teal complete their payback for the Ducks' 2009 upset with a four-game sweep after edging the Ducks in Game 4 from SAP Center, 2-1.

    Marcus Sorensen got the Sharks' crowd in the Shark Tank in a frenzy scoring the opening goal at 5:43 of the first period.

    After a scoreless second period, the Ducks tied the game at 1-1 when Andrew Cogliano struck at 7:53 of the third period.

    However, Tomas Hertl gave the Sharks the lead right back at 9:09 with a tip-in off a Marc-Edouard Vlasic shot.

    Martin Jones did the rest with 30 saves.

    The Sharks will take on the top seed in the Pacific Division bracket, the Vegas Golden Knights, who also completed a sweep on a SoCal NHL team in the Los Angeles Kings.

    The Nashville Predators held off a furious Colorado Avalanche third-period comeback to take a 3-1 series lead back to the Music City after a 3-2 win in Game 4 inside Denver's Pepsi Center.

    Filip Forsberg led the Preds barrage with a goal and assist as Nashville once led 3-0. Colton Sissons and Craig Smith scored in the second period.

    Things got worse for the Avs as Jonathan Bernier left the game before the second period was over with a lower body injury.

    The Preds also lost Ryan Johansen to injury as well.

    But the Avs refused to give up.

    Gabriel Landeskog got Colorado on the board on the power play at 5:20 in the third power play and Alexander Kerfoot pulled the Avs to within one, 3-2, at 11:01.

    Pekka Rinne held down the fort with 31 saves and even thanked the heavy metal as the Avs' attempt at a 3-3 game had a shot rang off the post.

    Nashville can close out their series inside Bridgestone Arena on Friday.

    Sharks are like the Capitol's of the West. Always make the playoffs. Never win the Cup. Knights will take them in 6 games.

    You just have to LOL at how the Flyers are getting abused in their own building.


    Penguins and Bruins would be a great semi.

    The Boston Bruins put the Toronto Maple Leafs on the brink of elimination after grabbing a 3-1 win in Game 4 inside the Air Canada Centre.

    David Pastrnak had two assists on three of the Bruins goals scored by Torey Krug 28 seconds into the game, Brad Marchand at 16:55 of the second period and Jake DeBrusk at 4:17 of the third period.

    Tomas Plekanec did help the Maple Leafs tie the game at 1-1 at 7:43 of the first period.

    However, Tuukka Rusk kept the Maple Leafs at bay with 31 saves.

    Meanwhile, it's a best-of-three between the Washington Capitals and the Columbus Blue Jackets as the Caps win Game 4, 3-1, to regain home ice.

    Evgeny Kuznetsov led the way with a goal and three assists and Braden Holtby helped the Caps with two wins after stopping 23 shots.

    Holtby's opposite number Sergei Bobrovsky had 29 saves for Columbus.

    The Philadelphia Flyers live to fight another day.

    The Flyers force a Game 6 on Sunday at Wells Fargo Center after doubling up the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2.

    Claude Giroux scored his first goal of the series at 17:29 of the first period to give the Flyers a 1-0 lead after the first period.

    The Penguins scored the next two goals of the game to take a 2-1 lead late in the second period.

    Bryan Rust tied the game at 1-1 at 12:00 and Jake Guentzel put Pittsburgh in front at 16:45.

    But Valtteri Filppula tied the game at 2-2 after two periods with a shorthanded tally at 18:15.

    Sean Couturier gave the Flyers a 3-2 lead at 18:45 of the third period and Matt Read sealed the win with an empty netter with 18 seconds left.

    Michal Neuvirth was another hero for Philly with 30 saves.

    Re: 2017-18 NHL Hockey Season Thread

    The Winnipeg Jets fans are celebrating at Portage and Main and at the Forks tonight.

    The second incarnation won their first ever playoff series and the first playoff series win in any incarnation since 1987 after a 5-0 vaporizing on the Minnesota Wild in Game 5 from Bell MTS Place.

    The first incarnation beat the Calgary Flames, 4-2 back in 1987.

    The Jets did most of their damage in the first period scoring four times and chasing Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk out of his crease almost 12 minutes into the game.

    Dubnyk allowed four goals on 10 shots.

    Mark Scheifele scored his fourth goal of the series and had an assist.

    Connor Hellebuyck closed out the series with his second straight shutout after stopping all 30 Minnesota shots.

    But unlike the Washington Capitals, the San Jose Sharks are closer to a Stanley Cup title. Two wins shy in 2016 for Team Teal.

    The Caps? No wins so far in their only Stanley Cup Finals appearance in 1998.

    Re: 2017-18 NHL Hockey Season Thread

    The Colorado Avalanche just simply won't go away.

    Down to their third goaltender with the injuries to Semyon Varlamov and Jonathan Bernier, Jared Bednar and the Avs force a Game 6 back to Denver's Pepsi Center on Sunday after stunning the Bridgestone Arena crowd with a 2-1 victory over the Nashville Predators in Game 5.

    After a scoreless first two periods, Nashville drew first blood in the third period.

    Former Pittsburgh Penguins center Nick Bonino scored his first goal of the playoffs at 10:18.

    First, the goal was waved off by referee Kevin Pollock when they thought Bonino kicked the puck into the net, but Pollock decided to talk with the Situation Room in Toronto about a distinct kicking motion.

    The officiating crew decided it was a good goal and the Preds took the lead, 1-0.

    But the Avs refused to quit.

    Nathan MacKinnon had tremendous patience and made Pekka Rinne look silly as he fed his captain Gabriel Landeskog for his fourth goal of the series on a tap-in at 15:49 to tie the game at 1-1.

    The Avs took the lead with 1:28 to go in regulation as Sven Andrighetto pounced on a rebound off a 2-on-1 after a turnover by P.K. Subban at the Colorado zone.

    But the big story is 'the Hamburgular' Andrew Hammond who was stellar in place of the two Avs' injured goaltenders. Hammond had 44 saves in the win and the first Stanley Cup playoff victory in his career.

    The Leafs sub-par defense is going to be what gets them dumped out of the playoffs by Bruins. It affects so much more than just giving up scoring chances. They are so often out of position that they recover and end up taking a penalty. Frederick has been good, but when you're constantly having to stand on his head it eventually is going to hurt.

    And it puts more pressure on the likes of Auston Matthews and Patrick Marleau to score more often.

    This is nothing new in Toronto whether it's Frederik Andersen, Curtis Joseph or Felix Potvin in net. The Maple Leafs don't have one or two quality stay at home defensemen to help out their goalies by winning battles in front of their own net or even have a quality defensive structure.

    They live to fight another day and it's still arguably a team on the rise, but they need to fix their defense.
