NHL Playoff Roundup

Associated Press
The NHL playoff roundup …
BOSTON ó Michael Cammalleri and Mathieu Darche scored in the first 2:20 of the game, and Carey Price stopped 34 shots Saturday night to lead Montreal to a 3-1 victory over the Boston Bruins and give the Canadiens a 2-0 lead in the first-round playoff series.
A No. 3 seed in the East after winning the Northeast Division, the Bruins coughed up home-ice advantage and need a victory in Montreal on Monday or Thursday just to bring the series back to Boston for a fifth game.
Boston has never, in 26 tries, won a playoff series after losing the first two games.
Tim Thomas made 23 saves as the Bruins played without captain Zdeno Chara, who was scratched minutes before the opening faceoff because of dehydration.
Flyers 5, Sabres 4
PHILADELPHIA ó Brian Boucher made 20 saves in relief of rookie Sergei Bobrovsky, and Ville Leino and Danny Briere scored in a 1:51 span in the second period to help Philadelphia beat to even the Eastern Conference series 1-1.
Boucher took over midway through the first period after Bobrovsky allowed three goals on seven shots.
After Philadelphia’s James van Riemsdyk tied it at 3 with 6:46 left in the first, Leino beat Ryan Miller on a power play with 6:24 remaining in the second and Briere made it 5-3 with 4:33 to go in the period.
Game 3 is Monday night in Buffalo.
Red Wings 4, Coyotes 3
DETROIT ó Pavel Datsyuk had a goal and two assists in the first period ó including a marvelous move to set up Darren Helm’s goal ó and Detroit held off Phoenix to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference series.
Brian Rafalski and Tomas Holmstrom also scored to help Detroit take a 4-0 lead in the second. Phoenix rallied with three power-play goals. Radim Vrbata scored in the second, and Shane Doan had two in the third.
The Red Wings were again without Henrik Zetterberg, sidelined by a left knee injury.
Game 3 is Monday night at Phoenix.
