Forget the hype of the Original Six rivalry between the Habs and Bruins. What really stood out tonight were the goaltenders in all three of these games. It’s only the second day of the first round and four teams have already been shut out. Could this round be the battle of the goaltenders? Perhaps they will be the ones to determine whether their team will move on to the second round.
Three games were played tonight - Bruins/Canadiens, Flyers/Sabres, and Sharks/Kings. Here are the final scores:
Bruins: 0 Sabres: 1 Sharks: 3 (OT)
Canadiens: 2 Flyers: 0 Kings: 2
(Habs lead series 1-0) (Sabres lead series 1-0) (Sharks lead series 1-0)
