The Canadiens and Ducks win; notes on Max Pacioretty, Nathan Beaulieu, Daniel Briere, John Gibson, Devante Smith-Pelly, Jarret Stoll and more. MAKE IT SEVEN Facing elimination, the Montreal Canadiens came out of the gate quickly to take an early lead, got a few bounces and 26 saves from Carey Price on the way to a 4-0 win, tying the series at three games apiece. Montreals big scorers came to play, as LW Max Pacioretty scored once and added an assist. It was Paciorettys second goal of the playoffs, his first of this series. Pacioretty struggled early in the series, but has been better (43 5-on-5 shot attempts for, 41 against) over the past three games. Paciorettys assist game on the first of Thomas Vaneks two goals. A couple of additions to the Habs lineup paid off in limited roles for Game Six. Veteran C Daniel Briere, a healthy scratch in Game Five, was on for nine shot attempts for and four against, anchoring the fourth line with Dale Weise and Brandon Prust. Rookie D Nathan Beaulieu, in for Douglas Murray, chipped in an assist and was one for 58.3% of 5-on-5 shot attempts when he was on the ice. Canadiens D Josh Gorges, charged with protecting the lead, played a game-high 26:19, and was on the ice for 25.0% of 5-on-5 shot attempts. With Gorges off the ice, the Canadiens held 64.3% of the shot attempts at even strength. That the series is going seven games doesnt come as a major surprise -- over the past decade, the Canadiens and Bruins have gone seven games in a playoff series in 2011, 2008 and 2004 -- but with a couple of missed opportunities earlier in the series (ie. Lost lead in Game Two, OT loss in Game Four), the Canadiens needed a really big performance to take this particular series to Game Seven. The Bruins have been the better team ove the course of this season and carried play more consistently over the course of this series, but that doesnt much matter now. Wednesday night will bring a winner-take-all Game Seven between these arch-rivals, with a trip to the Eastern Conference Final awaiting the winner. DUCKS FLYING HIGH For the first time in the Freeway Series, the home team came out on top, and the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 win in Game Five gave them a 3-2 series lead over the Los Angeles Kings. The Ducks turning to rookie G John Gibson, in their time of need, has altered the series and Gibson turned aside 39 of 42 Kings shots in Game Five to earn the win. In five regular season and playoff games with the Ducks this season, Gibson has stopped 150 of 157 shots (.955 SV%). This wouldnt be the first time that a rookie goaltender made a name for himself in the NHL playoffs, but Gibsons performance in the last two games has already tipped the series in Anaheims favour. Ducks LW Devante Smith-Pelly is taking a liking to his role on the number one line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. Smith-Pelly scored a pair of goals and led the Ducks with six shot attempts and seven hits. Once the Ducks jumped out to a 4-1 lead, they went into a defensive shell as the Kings mounted a comeback attempt. LW Marian Gaborik scored a pair of goals, giving him a playoff-leading eight goals, and had seven shots on goal. Not surprisingly, the Kings top line of Gaborik, Justin Williams and Anze Kopitar carried play, all three on the ice for better than 70% of 5-on-5 shot attempts. Unheralded Kings C Jarret Stoll has been having a tremendous series. In five games, hes been on the ice for 65.8% (79 for, 41 against) of the 5-on-5 shot attempts. Hes gone without a point in the past eight games, but the puck is spending a lot of time in Anaheims zone when Stoll is on the ice. Also, in Game Five, Kings D Drew Doughty had 13 shot attempts, including a deflection in the final minute that was kicked aside by Gibson. Kings C Mike Richards played 9:50, second-lowest on the team (ahead of only Jordan Nolan) and didnt take a shift in the final 10 minutes. In 250 regular season and playoff games over the past three seasons with Los Angeles, prior to Game Five, Richards had played more than 10 minutes in 249 of those games. The Kings may hold an edge in territorial play in this series, but theyre now facing a deficit and have to win back-to-back games against the Ducks. Finding a way to get Gibson off his game has to be the priority because, right now, the kid is playing well enough to leave Los Angeles royally disappointed.

Manningham made 42 receptions for 449 yards and one touchdown in 12 games and 10 starts last season before injuring his left knee in a loss at Seattle Dec.Delhi Daredevils missed the chance to move top of the IPL after slipping to a seven-wicket loss at home to struggling Rising Pune Supergiants. Englands Sam Billings (24 from 15) - who scored 54 on his Delhi debut on Saturday - crashed back-to-back maximums off Ravichandran Ashwin to help the hosts post 162-7.However, Ajinkya Rahanes unbeaten 63 guided Pune home with five balls in reserve as the visitors secured just a third win of the campaign and Delhi, captained by JP Duminy with Zaheer Khan rested, fell to only their third defeat. Delhi Daredevils batsman Karun Nair’s bat went flying in the IPL as he tried to hit Ashok Dinda for a boundary. Delhi laboured in the first part of their innings, with opener Rishabh Pant - a half-centurion against Gujarat on Tuesday - bowled for just two and Karun Nair (32 off 23) and Sanju Samson (20 off 17) caught out following promising starts.Billings, though, added impetus, clubbing Murugan Ashwin for four in addition to his lusty blows off namesake Ravichandran before he was pouched at long-on by Rahane switch-hitting the economical Rajat Bhatia (2-22).Carlos Brathwaite brought back memories of his match-winning innings in the World T20 final when he crashed three sixes in an eight-ball 20, while Pawan Negi (19no off 12) played a neat late cameo after stand-in skipper Duminy had made a steady 34.dddddddddddd Runs, switch-hits, catches...

Ajinkya Rahanes half-century led Pune to victory However, the visitors then took Mohammad Shami for 20 runs from the 18th - five wides and an MS Dhoni six among the carnage - and although Dhoni (27 off 20) was caught brilliantly by Billings on the boundary, two meaty maximums from Thisara Perera (14no off 5) ended Delhis chances before Rahane sealed Punes victory with a leg-side four.Catch more IPL action on Friday as Sunrisers Hyderabad welcome Gujarat Lions.
