At Boston:

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.

Anaheim will face the San Jose-Edmonton series winner in the Western Conference semifinals (that series is deadlocked at two games apiece).
