There were 4 games on the schedule Saturday as the 2009 NHL playoffs continued. Former Islanders aided in 2 of those contests. Here is a quick snapshot:
Detroit goaltender Chris Osgood stopped all 25 shots he faced as the host Red Wings downed the Columbus Blue Jackets for a 4-0 victory. The win gives the Wings a 2-0 series advantage. Ozzie, the first star, is now 2-0 on the postseason having surrendered only 1 goal on 46 shots for a .978 save percentage and a 0.50 goals against average. The goose egg was the 14th of Osgood's career in the postseason and improves his playoff record to 61-41 in 108 games.
Calgary defenseman Adrian Aucoin scored a goal late in the 1st Period that staked the Flames to a 2-0 lead which evaporated as the host Chicago Blackhawks pulled off a 3-2 come-from-behind win to snatch a 2-0 series lead. The netter snapped a 14 game postseason goal-less streak dating back to April 16, 2003 when Aucoin was still a member of the Isles. The playoff goal was the 5th of Aucoin's career coming in his 36th postseason game. He has 1 goal on 2 games in this series so far. Assisting on the goal was center Olli Jokinen. The helper was Jokinen's first career playoff point.
