The big story last night was the Detroit Red Wings as a 5 goal 1st period just blew away the Sharks was which led by Johan Franzen who's 4 goals tied a Red Wings Team Record by the most goals in a playoff game in team history.

Joining the goal rush included by Todd Bertuzzi and Valtteri Filppula in the 1st period then Brian Rafalski in the 2nd period to join the Red Wings forward which went from 2 to 6 goals scored in one night as the Red Wings kept their playoffs hopes alive as the Sharks now lead the series 3-1.

San Jose's only goal was scored by Danny Heatly which was scored late in the 2nd period. In the 3rd period with the game already put away by Detroit. Things got chippy as numerous fights lead to misconducts and a couple of ejections as well. The league will review the fights to see if anyone will be suspended for Game 5 and beyond for this series, and mostly for the Sharks it could go beyond for the Western Conference Finals against the Chicago VS. Vancouver Winner.

Pittsburgh VS. Montreal saw a very fast start as the Penguins saw themselves up 2-1 at just 5 minutes into the game. Pittsburgh goals Maxime Talbot and Chris Kunitz put the Penguins up 1-1 and 2-1. Montreal responded with a Tom Pyatt that got the scoring going in the opening minute to eventually go up 1-0 as he scored his first goal of the playoffs to keep the Canadians in the series. After a scoreless second period as both teams took a cautious approach for the rest of the period.

The 2nd period saw the Penguins looking to take over the game with Pittsburgh dominating the SOG Count with a 11-3 advantage. Through 2 periods the Penguins out-shot the Canadians 26-9 through 40 minutes. However it was Montreal that control of the game in the 3rd as Maxim Lapierre and Brian Gionta scored in the first 3 minutes of the 3rd period.

From their on, Montreal goalie Martin Havalt became big again by stopping 16 shots in the 3rd period. For the game he stopped 33 of 35 shots while Pittsburgh Goalie Marc Andre Flurry made 20 of 23 saves.
