The others being:

Minnesota 5, Chicago 4 (OT) on April 28, 1985.
Los Angeles 6, Edmonton 5 (OT) on April 10, 1982.
Montreal 7, Boston 5 on April 8, 1971.
Agree with you....
An amazing game....

Anybody know who the PbP announcers is tonight on the Caps-Rangers game on Versus? They never identify him, but he is very good. Calls the game in complete, syntactically correct sentences, and says the names of the playes clearly. A-la Danny Gallivan, the greatest ever. He also did the first two Red Wing-Coyotes games.

If you're watching on Versus, that would be Mike Emrick on PbP and former goalie Darren Pang on color.

Need a drink after watching the Caps proving their futility againnnnnnn

Wings are goin for the sweep tonight.

Is there anyone who can predict Eastern conf. taking the cup? I think the western conference semi finals are going to be the toughest games. East just can't hang.

Well it's been a great 24-hours of comebacks which makes this time of year so great

First of all, my apologies for not acknowledging the great comeback of the Sharks last night against the Kings. I got caught up in Randy's comment but it was a fantastic game to see, the 5 goals in the second was a franchise record so good job Sharks.

Now the Caps down 3-0 to the Rangers and looking hard at a tied series 2-2 get a gift from the Rangers and Jason Chimera gives the win to the Caps making that series 3-1.

As I type, Wings just tied Coyotes 2-2 so the sweep is possible. Last I saw Ducks were big over Predators 6-3 and Lightning are in big trouble after James Neal throws the puck from an sharp angle into the net over a screened Dwayne Roloson to give the Pens the win.

I feel deeply sorry for Ranger fans. Some won't be sleeping easy tonight. Wow what a game.

The sweep is complete.

Wings beat the Coyotes 6-3 to sweep the series 4-0. Congrats to Detroit.

Let's go Red Wings, let's go! Not only is this their 20th consecutive play-off appearence, the best in any sport, but this was also their 57 consecutive play-off game of 4 goals or more.

15 years ago Detroit knocked Winnipeg out of the play-offs in Round 1, was the last game the Jets played in Canada before moving the franchise to Phoenix. So is tonight's game a deja vu? Are the Coyotes going back to Canada? Bettman says no, but we'll see.
