NHL playoffs: Ducks, Kings even; Bruins one win away
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES — John Gibson made 28 saves in his dynamic NHL playoff debut, captain Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and an assist, and the Anaheim Ducks evened their second-round playoff series with a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 on Saturday night.
Devante Smith-Pelly also scored in the first period and Corey Perry had two assists for the top-seeded Ducks, who bounced back from two series-opening losses at home with consecutive victories at Staples Center.
Jonathan Quick allowed two goals in the first period before getting replaced by rookie Martin Jones, who faced just three shots.
Game 5 is Monday night in Anaheim.
The visitors have dominated the series between teams separated by 30 miles on the I-5 freeway, and Anaheim ramped up its defense downtown to even the series — even with a revolving door in the crease.
Gibson, who made his NHL debut with three victories late in the regular season, got the nod from coach Bruce Boudreau in place of veteran Jonas Hiller, who started the first two games against Los Angeles and finished Game 3 after Frederik Andersen injured his right leg.
Three days after Gibson made 39 saves in an AHL playoff game in Newfoundland, he coolly backstopped the Ducks through the final 40 minutes.
BRUINS 4, CANADIENS 2
BOSTON — Reilly Smith and Jarome Iginla scored 32 seconds apart to help the Boston Bruins snap a five-year playoff power-play drought against Montreal and beat the Canadiens in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Saturday night.
The Bruins lead the best-of-seven series 3-2, with a chance to eliminate the Canadiens in Montreal on Monday night. Game 7 would be Wednesday night back in Boston.
Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson also scored, and Tuukka Rask stopped 29 shots for Boston. He extended his shutout streak to 122 minutes, 6 seconds before Brendan Gallagher scored to make it 3-1 on a power play with 5:21 left in the second period.
Carey Price made 26 saves for Montreal. P.K. Subban had a late goal power-play goal.
The Bruins had not scored a power-play goal in the playoffs against the Canadiens in 39 tries over 14 playoff games dating to 2009.
