The Stanley Cup Playoffs continued on Wednesday with four games.
Tom Wilson and T.J. Oshie each scored twice while Alex Ovechkin added a power-play tally as the Washington Capitals held off the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-4 on the road in game four of their conference quarterfinal series, now knotted at two games apiece.
Bobby Ryan scored the game's only goal in the third period while Craig Anderson stopped all 22 shots as the Ottawa Senators defeated the Boston Bruins 1-0 on the road in game four of their opening-round series, which the Senators---who can finish off the Bruins with a game-five victory back home in Ottawa on Friday---now lead three games to one.
At St. Louis:
Charlie Coyle and Martin Hanzal each scored a goal while Devan Dubnyk stopped all 28 saves as the Minnesota Wild avoided elimination by blanking the St. Louis Blues 2-0 on the road in the fourth game of their conference quarterfinal series, which the Blues still lead three games to one.
The Blues can still clinch the series on Saturday with a game-five win at St. Paul, Minnesota.
At Calgary, Alberta:
Patrick Eaves, Nate Thompson, and Ryan Getzlaf each scored once as the Anaheim Ducks completed a four-game conference quarterfinal series sweep after ousting the Calgary Flames 3-1 on the road in game four of their series.
John Gibson saved 36 of 37 shots for the Ducks.
Anaheim will face the San Jose-Edmonton series winner in the Western Conference semifinals (that series is deadlocked at two games apiece).
