Saturday April 26

There were yet another pair of games on Saturday as the Semifinals series kick in to high gear. Former Islanders are lending their help along the way. Here is a look at the 2 games:

* Chris Osgood is on a roll. Ozzie stopped 19 of 20 shots as the host Detroit Red Wings thumped the Colorado Avalanche 5-1 to grab a 2-0 series lead. Osgood is 4-0 in 4 starts during the 2008 Playoffs. He has stopped 90 of 95 shots for a .947 save percentage and a slim 1.09 goals against average with 1 shutout.

* Veteran Jim Dowd assisted on the opening goal only 5:53 in to play as the Philadelphia Flyers beat the host Montreal Canadiens 4-2 to even their series at 1 win a piece. Dowd has 3 points (1 goal, 2 assists) on 9 games this postseason.
