Yesterday’s Scores
  • The Montreal Canadiens, lead by Jaroslav Halak and Mike Cammalleri, beat the Pittsburgh Penguins, 3-1, to even their series at 1-1.
  • The San Jose Sharks, lead by Joe Pavelski, beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-3 to take a 2-0 series lead. Playing on the Detroit tradition of throwing an octopus onto the ice before playoff games, a San Jose fan threw a shark with a baby octopus inside its mouth onto the ice Sunday. Epic.

Tonight’s Action

  • Chicago Blackhawks – Vancouver Canucks, Game 2.
  • Boston Bruins – Philadelphia Flyers, Game 2.
