The Sharks now need a win in Game 6 to force a seventh and deciding game, after they were 2:46 away from winning Thursday's contest in regulation and instead sending this series back to San Jose with the chance to close out the Oilers. "You can't discredit the opposition in the Calgary Flames with the way they played".

Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby (70) celebrates their win following third period NHL hockey round one playoff action against the Toronto Maple Leafs, in Toronto on Wednesday, April 19, 2017.

Who takes home Game 4?

The tight finish came after a dominant start for the Capitals. This was the fifth series sweep in franchise history and the Ducks were able to maintain their 13 year home winning streak against the Flames.

Breathing is essential for a team that hasn't made it past the second round in the past decade with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, and is facing major roster changes this summer no matter the result.

Calgary starter Brian Elliott whiffed on the Shea Theodore goal that sparked Anaheim's comeback from a 4-1 deficit Monday.

"It's hard to gauge it because they've had a lot of unusual stuff", Trotz said, praising Holtby for being hard-nosed to handle bad bounces. Braden Holtby made 30 saves. Gibson was not ideal and was even pulled in Game 3, but he seemed to come up big when it counted the most. Depth was considered one of the Capitals' advantages, but Trotz shortening his bench bears watching.

Boston is still banged up and is now on the brink of elimination. Interim coach Bruce Cassidy said injured defensemen Torey Krug, Brandon Carlo and Adam McQuaid are progressing, but he doesn't expect them to play in Game 5. Mentally, though, Ottawa is healthy and at peace with its situation in the series. "If you keep thinking about it, you just dig yourself a hole".

"Whenever you can have some extra rest and guys are banged up, it's only going to be beneficial for us", Thompson said. We made our push for the playoffs and got into the playoffs. Since the start of the 2007 playoffs, Anaheim is 20-3 against teams north of the border, per the NHL's media site. The Ducks' 21-year-old defenseman had only nine points in 34 regular season games this season, but has been having a playoff series to remember.
