Former Islanders were impossible to find on Thursday night as the other two series began. In New Jersey the Devils lost 5-4 after the Ottawa Senators busted out with 4 goals in the first 16:39. Ottawa leads the series 1-0. The San Jose Sharks pulled off the upset over Detroit Redwings at Joe Louis Arena, 2-0. San Jose's 2 goals 24 seconds apart in the first period were all they needed to grab a 1-0 series lead.
Friday recaps are coming soon.
