NY Rangers 1, Washington 2. The old Blue Jacket, Sergei Fedorov, wins this one for the Capitals. It was a great come back for Washington, although this game looked like it belonged to the Rangers until the last ten minutes of the final period.
Carolina 4, New Jersey 3. This one had an unbelievable finish, with the Canes scoring two goals in the last 1:20 to tie and then win the game. Wow. Fatso got beat three times from left-handed shooters coming down the right side.
So Boston will host Carolina and Washington will host Pittsburgh. I’ll have my second round predictions tomorrow, but I got them all correct in the East. The Sharks let me down in the West.
