Description: Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonaugh scored the game-winning goal in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Penguins.
Insight: McDonaugh took a shot from the point on the power play, and it just beat Fleury on his stick side. The shot didn't appear to deflect off anything, so it was probably a save Fleury should have made. The goal put the Rangers ahead, 2-0, at the end of the first period. Fleury and Pittsburgh responded, but the comeback fell short. The Rangers took Game 1, 2-1.
Description: Flames defenseman Kris Russell scored the game-winner with under 30 seconds remaining in regulation to beat the Canucks, 2-1, in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals on Wednesday.
Insight: Russell took a shot from the point with about 29 seconds left, and it somehow beat Vancouver goaltender Eddie Lack. It was the only shot Russell had on net in the entire game.
Description: Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith scored the game-winning goal in double overtime to beat the Predators, 4-3, in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.
Insight: Keith scored on a shot from the point. It looked like Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne was screened and didn't see the shot. Keith also had an assist on the game-tying power-play goal from Jonathan Toews. Chicago fell behind, 3-0, in this game, but scored three times in the second and then scored the game-winner in double overtime.
Description: Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban had two assists and finished plus-one before receiving a game misconduct in Game 1 against the Senators.
Insight: Subban assisted both of Montreal's first two goals as the Canadiens took a, 2-1, lead early in the second, but Subban then took a baseball-like swing and slashed Marc Stone right above his gloves on his wrists. Stone looked badly hurt, and Subban received a game misconduct. Stone, though, returned shortly after, so some have speculated that he embellished the call a little. Even without Subban and already without Max Pacioretty, the Canadiens won, 4-3.
Description: Kings defensman Drew Doughty had a goal and an assist in the, 4-2, loss to the Oilers on Tuesday.
Insight: This is a costly loss, coming to one of the worst teams in the league. Doughty had two points but was also minus-two. He has been disappointing this season with seven goals and 38 assists in 80 games this season.
Description: Panthers rookie defenseman Aaron Ekblad scored the team's only goal in the, 4-1, loss to the Canadiens on Sunday.
Insight: Ekblad tied the game on the power play at the beginning of the second period, but Montreal scored the final three goals of the game. Ekblad has 12 goals and 25 assists in 79 games this season.
Description: Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith had a goal and an assist in the, 4-3, victory over the Sabres on Friday.
Insight: It looked like the Blackhawks were going to cruise to victory when Keith and Patrick Sharp both scored in the first period, but the Sabres battled back to take the lead, 3-2, with 10 minutes to go. Jonathan Toews scored twice in the final two minutes to rescue the Blackhawks. Keith has 11 goals and 35 assists in 77 games this season.
