Associated Press
The NHL roundup …
ANAHEIM, Calif. ó Patrick Marleau scored the go-ahead goal on a power play with 9:27 left, and the San Jose Sharks evaded a daunting playoff deficit with a 4-3 victory over Anaheim in Game 3, trimming the Ducks’ series lead to 2-1.
Dan Boyle had two goals and an assist, and fellow defenseman Rob Blake had a goal and an exceptional assist on Marleau’s winner for the top-seeded Sharks, who had scored just twice while losing the first two games of their series against the eighth-seeded Ducks at home.
Canucks 3, Blues 2 (OT)
ST. LOUIS ó Alex Burrows scored his second goal of the game with 18.9 seconds to go in overtime and Roberto Luongo made 47 saves to help Vancouver complete a first-round sweep.
Kyle Wellwood also scored for the Canucks, who swept a four-game series for the first time in franchise history. Vancouver won a series before the seventh game for the first time in 12 tries since 1994.
Red Wings 4, Blue Jackets 1COLUMBUS, Ohio ó Henrik Zetterberg scored two goals and the Detroit Red Wings dominated from start to finish to grab a 3-0 lead in their first-round series.
The first NHL playoff game at Nationwide Arena ó in the Blue Jackets’ 659th game ó was a mammoth letdown for a franchise-record crowd of 19,219.
Penguins 3, Flyers 1
PHILADELPHIA ó Sidney Crosby and the Penguins can finish off the Flyers back on home ice.
A sliding Crosby scored a goal that ricocheted off his skate, his midsection and into the back of the net to spark Pittsburgh.
