The defending champion's from Anaheim are in some trouble after suffering a second home loss to open their series with the Dallas. A 5-2 victory puts the Stars in control of the first round series as the teams head to Dallas for the next contest. Things were tied up heading into the third period when Mike Modano and Brad Richards found the back of the net within a minute of one another.
• Hockey Town defeats Honky Tonk Town. The pucks are bouncing/sliding/careening in the right directions for Detroit in their series against Nashville. The Red Wings scored a go-ahead goal off of a deflected Kris Draper shot to take a 2-0 series lead over Nashville.
• Is anybody not up 2-0? Boston evened the game with two goals in the third period, but it was Montreal's Alex Kovalev that scored the overtime winner. The Canadiens are also up 2-0 in the series.
There's one afternoon game between the Caps and Flyers on the schedule, with three more games coming tonight.
