End of times?

As Detroit and Pittsburgh prepare themselves for their upcoming road trips, we have to wonder if this will continue for the rest of the series or will it be the end of time for both Chicago and Carolina? Both series falling down to 2-0, Carolina and Chicago need to get win at home or face the long shame home for giving up the series.

Chi/Det Game 2: Toews stepped his game up and got Chicago back into the game before letting Detriot get a OT score and game winner. Chris Osgood blocked 37 for 39 shots and The Bulin Wall blocked 35 of 38. Brian Rafalski and Dan Cleary got the regulation scores to tie up the game at 2, but it was Mikael Samuelsson, who finished off a 3-on-1 at 5:14 of overtime to give the Wings a 3-2 win over Chicago. Detroit ends up taking the 2-0 series lead over Chicago and making the Hawks climb a even steeper hill to get close to their victory.

Car/Pit Game 2: In a back and forth battle of a game, Carolina and Pittsburgh continue to tredge through the mud to win this game, but the end victory was given to Pittsburgh, thanks to Evgeni Malkin’s hat trick. Carolina broke off at the start of the game, gaining a 3-2 lead in the first period thanks to goals made by Chad Larose, Jussi Jokinen, and Dennis Seidenberg. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin kept the Penguins in the water with two points in the period. As the second period started, the game picked right back up where they left it off but, this time the Penguins scored the only two goals in the second period with a goal by Maxime Talbot and Chris Kunitz, making the game 3-4 in Pittsburgh’s favor. Patrick Eaves came out after two minutes in the third and got the next Carolina score, making the game 4-4 even. Then something happened to Evgeni Malkin, as he went on to score two more goals and backed up by Tyler Kennedy, who got another goal in the third period, and gave the Penguins a 4-7 win over Carolina and a 2-0 series lead.
