On the NHL Stanley Cup Playoff podcasts with Matt Harrington:
#1 Coloardo Avalanche goaltender Paul Francouz made 25 stops in Colorado’s 4-0 convincing win over the Edmonton Oilers to take a 2-0 series lead.
#2 What’s a danger for the Oilers is they now have pressure going back to Edmonton for games three and four at Rogers Place and will have to work some magic to get back in this series as it could very well get late early for the Oilers.
#3 It was impressive work by Francouz considering he was replacing starting goalie Darcy Kuemper who suffered an upper body injury in game 1. Francouz has the hot hand do you see him starting game 3 tonight and what the latest status on Kuemper?
#4 Mika Zibanejad scored the game winning goal for the New York Rangers as they edged the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning at Madison Square Garden in New York 3-2 this was the Rangers second straight win as they take a 2-0 series lead.
#5 The Rangers got help from goaltender Igor Shesterkin who stopped 29 shots and stopped the Lightning from getting in the net the win for the Rangers were their eighth straight win at MSG setting a team record for wins on home ice.
