The 2015 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs keep rolling on, and we’ve got four more matchups to check out tonight. In the meantime, let’s visit with some of the other series around the league and check out some of the key players in our daily wrap-up.
Petr Mrazek, G, Detroit Red Wings: The Red Wings picked up an important victory in their series against the Lightning last night, taking a 3-0 decision for a 2-1 lead in the series.
Mrazek made 22 saves for his first shutout in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Datsyuk, Sheahan and Glendening scored while Jonahtan Ericsson had two assists.

Nicklas Backstrom, C, Washington Capitals: This series is getting interesting. Backstrom got to play the hero last night against the Islanders, logging a game-winning goal at 11:09 in overtime to lift his team to a 2-1 victory and a 2-2 series mark.
Alex Ovechkin also scored for the Capitals. Both he and Backstrom each had an assist as well.
Game 5 is tomorrow night at Verizon Center.
Scott Darling, G, Chicago Blackhawks: Talk about a marathon game. It doesn’t get much longer than Chicago and Nashville’s 3-OT matchup last night, which the Blackhawks took on a game-winner by Brent Seabrook for a 3-2 result.
Darling logged 50 saves on 52 shots. The teams combined for 100 shots on goal together in the 101:00 of total playing time. It took 4 hours and 31 minutes to finish the game.
Chicago is up 3-1 in the series.
Jiri Hudler, C, Calgary Flames: Hudler logged a goal and an assist, while goalie Jonas Hiller posted 28 saves on 29 shots in the Flames’ 3-1 victory over the Canucks last night.
Calgary has a 3-1 edge in the series, and if they can get one more game they’ll advance in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in 11 years.
Game 5 is tomorrow at Rogers Arena.
