Pens shutout Flyers for 3-1 series lead

Pittsburgh Penguins take 2-1 series lead behind performance of Matt Murray power play

The timing of the injury could not be worse as the Flyers now trail the Penguins two games to one in their first-round matchup. The good news is that the Flyers aren't out of it yet and while it seems unlikely that Philadelphia will manage to win three straight games against Pittsburgh, there's always that chance. Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel scored goals in the opening period and Matt Murray stopped all 26 Philadelphia shots on goal for the win.

The teams will head back to Pittsburgh for Game Five on Friday, April 20 at 7:00 p.m. Riley Sheahan made it 5-0 late in the third.

-San Jose completed a series-sweep of Anaheim following a 2-1 victory last night.

Hertl scored just 1:16 after the Ducks finally got a puck past Jones when he deflected a point shot from Marc-Edouard Vlasic past John Gibson.

She will serve her sentence at the Mary Wade Correctional Centre, a maximum security women's prison. Roberge was promised the ticket, $5,000 in spending money and more cash when she returned home.

As great as Philadelphia has looked at times throughout the season, this series against Pittsburgh has been a wakeup call when it comes to whether they deserved even the slightest bit of consideration for being Stanley Cup contenders.

Nikita Kucherov scored twice and had an assist as the Lightning topped the Devils, 3-1 to take a three-games-to-one lead. Kyle Palmieri had the lone goal for the Devils, who will try to fend off elimination Saturday in Tampa. The victory gives the Pens a 3-1 series lead. Cory Schneider made 34 saves. The Devils led until J.T. Miller and Kucherov scored about 3 1/2 minutes apart in the first period.

It remains a question whether or not Sean Couturier will be available for game four against Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. Cruising along and up 3-0, the Vezina Trophy finalist allowed Gabriel Landeskog's 5-on-3 power-play goal in the third and another on Alexander Kerfoot's tap-in off a rebound. The Avalanche pulled backup goalie Andrew Hammond late, but couldn't get the tying goal.
