Two more fighters are out and the stage is set…
Where’s Canada, eh?
Although the 8th seed battled hard, Ottawa fell to the Rangers 2-1 in Game 7. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 26 shots to save New York from elimination. The Rangers move on to round two verses Washington while the lone Canadian team heads to the golf course.
It came down to double overtime, but New Jersey finally prevailed over the persistent Panthers 3-2. Martin Brodeur staved off 43 shots to advance the Devils to the semifinals. New Jersey goes on to face the fighting Flyers Sunday in Philly.
