With 2 series on the brink of being wrapped up on Tuesday night there were 2 squads that avoided elimination and brought their 2nd Round series to pivotal Game 7s. Alas only 1 Former Islander was involved in those games with the Boston Bruins surviving against the host Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 to even a series they trailed 3-1 in at 3 wins a piece in the other contest. Here is a look at the other game:
The Ducks pulled off a must-win 2-1 victory over the visiting Detroit Red Wings to even the series at 3-3 forcing the final game at Joe Louis Arena on Thursday. Detroit goaltender Chris Osgood played well stopping 26 of 28 shots but the Wings' offense failed for 2nd time in 6 games letting the now top-form backstopper down. Ozzie is 7-3 in all 10 of the Detroit playoff games with an impressive 1.97 goals against average, a .924 save percentage and 1 shutout.
