Here's What Happened
in the Rest of the League:
Game 3: St. Louis Blues at Winnipeg Jets
The Jets stole home ice advantage by splitting the first two games in St. Louis, and look to deal another blow back at the virtual MTS Centre in Winnipeg, where—despite it being April 12th—it was still -20 degrees Celsius in Winnipeg on Sunday.
Unfortunately for the Jets, the temperature wasn’t the only thing in the blues on Sunday, as the final score went the way of the Blues, as well. Despite a valiant comeback effort from being down 4-1 in the first, to a 4-4 tie at the end of the second, the Jets fell 5-4 in regulation.

Game 3: Washington Capitals at Carolina Hurricanes
A massive storm surge in Washington saw the Canes up 2-0 in the series, coming home to Raleigh.
A tight Game 3 had the two teams exchanging goals for the first two periods, but it was Petr Mrazek who stole the show in the 3rd, stopping all 21 shots he faced in the frame.
The Canes will have their brooms ready on Tuesday, as they look to sweep the series and upset the Capitals.

Game 3: Boston Bruins at New York Islanders
A Game 1 and 2 split in Boston has the series knotted at 1-1 heading back to Long Island, or is it Brooklyn? Who really knows? What we do know is that Game 3 was a thriller, even if it was only played in front of 9,000 Islanders fans. After going down 3-0 early, the Bruins stormed back for a 5-3 victory on the back of a hat-trick from Jake Debrusk.

Game 3: Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins
The Flyers were arguably the best team in the NHL in the second half of the regular season, and are showing no signs of slowing down in the playoffs, taking a 2-0 series lead to Pittsburgh, largely thanks to Calude Giroux and Vincent Trocheck.
Game 3 proved to be no different, as the Flyers walked all over the Penguins, to the tune of a 5-2 victory. Carter Hart was outstanding once again, as Bryan Elliot shed a tear on the bench at the thought that he will likely be traded in the offseason, yet again.

Game 3: Tampa Bay Lightning at Toronto Maple Leafs
Virtual Maple Leaf Square was buzzing, as their beloved Leafs brought home a series split to Scotiabank Arena on Monday.
Unconfirmed reports of fake Drake were abundant, after the Canadian rapper stated Sunday—in a fake interview with Kyle Bukaskas—that “I want your [Kyle’s] hot love and emotion, endlessly”. The Leafs must have taken Drake’s comments to heart, as they take took Game 3 by a final score of 3-1.
TOR – Matthews (4) – Hyman

TOR – Kerfoot (1) – Engvall, Spezza

Leafs Lead Series 2-1
Game 3: Colorado Avalanche at Dallas Stars
A horrendous slashing penalty in Game 1 found Corey Perry suspended for a solo game, having him return to action Monday, on the top with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn.
Perry had an instant impact, drawing a questionable high-sticking penalty, sending the Stars to a successful powerplay early in the first. They wouldn’t look back from there, taking a 3-0 victory on the back of a perfect performance from Ben Bishop.
DAL - Pavelski (2) – Seguin, Benn
DAL – Faksa (1) – Klingberg, Dickinson
DAL – Pavelski (3) – Hintz, Gurianov
Stars Lead Series 2-1
Game 3: Las Vegas Golden Knights at Vancouver Canucks
The Canucks returned to Vancouver down 2-0 in their first round series with the Knights, but it was the comments of Zack MacEwen that had everybody talking on Monday.
“Those beds at the Waldorf Astoria are the worst beds I have ever slept in, in my entire life” said MacEwen Sunday morning as the team boarded their bus to Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, to fly home for Game 3.
It was later revealed by the team that Zack missed curfew by a full 6 hours after Saturday’s game, as social media posts revealed him attending a Chainsmokers show at Omnia Nightclub at Caesars’ Palace in the early morning hours.
As a result, Michael Ferland found his way into the lineup in MacEwen’s place on Monday, logging 4:29 of ice time and finishing as a -1. Regardless, the Canucks displayed their best performance of the post-season, coming out with a 5-2 victory.
