New Jersey Devils vs New York Rangers
The New Jersey Devils are suddenly brimming with confidence. Getting two close wins on the road after opening their playoff series with a pair of lopsided losses at home will do that.
Jonas Siegenthaler scored the tie-breaking goal in the third period, Akira Schmid had 22 saves in another shutdown start and the Devils beat the New York Rangers 3-1 Monday night to even their first-round playoff series at two games apiece. Jack Hughes and Ondrej Palat also scored for New Jersey.
Game 5 is at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Thursday night, with Game 6 back at MSG on Saturday night. Game 7, if necessary, will be next Monday night on the Devils’ home ice.
Vincent Trocheck scored for the Rangers, and Igor Shesterkin stopped 20 shots. New York has totaled just two goals in the last two games after scoring five each in the first two.
Toronto Maple Leafs vs Tampa Bay Lightning
Auston Matthews knows as well as anyone that Toronto’s job is not finished.
The Maple Leafs took advantage of another late collapse by the Tampa Bay Lightning, moving to the brink of their first playoff series win in nearly two decades Monday night with a 5-4 overtime win in Game 4 of the best-of-seven matchup.
Toronto hasn’t won a playoff series since 2004 and has been ousted from the first round each of the past six postseasons, including a year ago when Tampa Bay rallied from 2-1 and 3-2 deficits to advance in seven games.
The Lightning have won 11 of 12 playoff series over the past three postseasons, advancing to the Stanley Cup Final three straight years and winning the championship twice.
Alex Killorn scored twice in helping the Lightning build a 4-1 lead that the Maple Leafs erased with three goals – two by Matthews – in a span of 6 minutes, 20 seconds. Morgan Rielly‘s second goal of the series tied it 4-all at 16:04 of the third period.
Vegas Golden Knights vs Winnipeg Jets
William Karlsson and Ivan Barbashev scored 47 seconds apart in the second period and the Vegas Golden Knights held on for a 4-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night to take a 3-1 lead in their first-round playoff series.
The Golden Knights could eliminate Winnipeg in Game 5 of the best-of-seven series on Thursday night in Las Vegas. Teams that take a 3-1 lead in a best-of-seven series hold a series record of 299-31.
Winnipeg lost more than the game when veteran star centre Mark Scheifele left the ice early in the first period and the team announced he wouldn’t return because of an upper-body injury. He joined a growing list of injured teammates that includes all-star defenseman Josh Morrissey (injured in Game 3) and speedy forward Nikolaj Ehlers, who hasn’t competed in the playoffs.
Colorado Avalanche vs Seattle Kraken
Jordan Eberle scored on the power play three minutes into overtime and the Seattle Kraken beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 on Monday night to even their best-of-7 series at 2-2.
Eberle collected a deflection and buried his first goal of the playoffs past Colorado goalie Alexandar Georgiev. Seattle was on the power play after Josh Manson was called for tripping on Jaden Schwartz on a breakaway attempt in the opening moments of the extra session.
It was the first playoff overtime game in franchise history for the Kraken, who ensured there would be at least one more game played in Seattle.
Will Borgen and Daniel Sprong scored in the first period to a 2-0 lead. Mikko Rantanen scored twice in the second period for Colorado to pull even.
