Finishing the series in overtime

The Penguins finally finished off the Rangers. While New York fought back from a 2-0 deficit to get to overtime and make things interesting it was not enough, and resulted in Pittsburgh moving on to the next round, and an Eastern Conference final taking place solely in Pennsylvania.

Out west the Sharks tried to hang on against the Dallas Stars, but ultimately lost during the fourth overtime. Dallas was (as always) carried by Turco who had 61 saves on 62 shots, and had a shutout for the final 87:27 of the game. Former Sabre and Sharks defenseman Brian Campbell lead all players (besides goalies) in ice time, playing 56:23 during the game. However he was partially to blame for both of the goals for Dallas, as he was on the ice for the first one, and in the penalty box for the second.
