Brent Seabrook registered a goal and an assist for Chicago, but ended up on the losing end as the Blackhawks dropped a 4-3 decision in triple-overtime to St. Louis Thursday.

Seabrook's performance was quite something, but it wasn't enough to allow Chicago to avoid dropping Game 1 of their first round playoff series in heartbreaking fashion. Johnny Oduya and Patrick Kane also found the back of the net for the Blackhawks in the loss.

Corey Crawford was the hard luck loser for Chicago in Thursday's 4-3 triple-overtime loss to the Blues.

Crawford performed admirably in the defeat as he turned aside 47 of the 51 shots he faced in just over five periods of hockey. He may not have come away with a win in this scenario, but he has proven the ability to step up when it counts in the past.

Ryan Miller was excellent in goal for the Blues Thursday night as they outlasted Chicago to earn a 4-3 triple-overtime win in Game 1 of their opening round playoff series.

Miller allowed three goals on 42 shots in the victory, during which he played over 100 grueling minutes. Given how well he performed in this playoff opener, the Blues are certainly happy to have acquired him when they did.

Alexander Steen's goal 26 seconds into the third overtime period gave the Blues a 4-3 win over Chicago in Game 1 of their first round playoff series Thursday night.

Steen knocked a nifty little pass from Steve Ott into the back of the net soon after the third extra frame began and sent the Blues fans home happy. Adam Cracknell, Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz also scored for St. Louis in the thrilling victory. If the rest of the series is as exciting as this game, it could lead to widespread heart attacks for fans of both teams.

Andrew MacDonald scored the only Flyers goal in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Rangers.

The blueliner who recently signed a lucrative contract extension with Philadelphia is best known for his shot-blocking ability, but he was the only member of the Flyers to beat Henrik Lundqvist on this night. Scott Hartnell drew the lone assist on MacDonald's tally.

Flyers goaltender Ray Emery struggled in a 4-1 loss to the Rangers in Game 1 of their opening round playoff series Thursday night.

Starting in place of number one netminder Steve Mason (upper body), Emery allowed four goals on 36 shots in the defeat, though he only deserves part of the blame as the Flyers were soundly outplayed on this night. With Mason's status for Game 2 still unclear, it's looking like Philly may have to use its backup again.

Brad Richards was excellent in the Rangers' 4-1 win over Philadelphia in Game 1 of their first round playoff series Thursday night.

Richards registered a goal and two assists in the victory, leading the way for a Blueshirts team that has struggled offensively all season. Mats Zuccarello, Carl Hagelin and Derek Stepan also found the back of the net for New York while Martin St. Louis picked up two helpers in the win.

Henrik Lundqvist had an easy time against the Flyers Thursday as the Rangers cruised to a 4-1 win in Game 1 of their opening round playoff series.

A large amount of credit should go to the Rangers' defense, as King Henrik only faced 15 shots in the contest, stopping 14 of them. Despite the fact that he wasn't severely tested in this outing, Lundqvist looks to have carried his hot second half play into the postseason.

Ben Bishop's return to the lineup from an elbow injury isn't expected to occur any time soon.

However, coach Jon Cooper said that Bishop could be available to play later in Tampa Bay's first-round series against Montreal, which is what he said before the playoffs began.

Raffi Torres (knee) will play Thursday when the Sharks host Los Angeles in their playoff opener.

He sat out the last 17 games of the regular season to rest after returning for five games from knee surgery. Torres skated with Andrew Desjardins and Martin Havlat on the fourth line during the morning session.

Coach Darryl Sutter is expecting to see a different Mike Richards in the postseason.

"Mike Richards is our most experienced forward in terms of playoffs, and he always plays his best when we expect him to," said Sutter. Richards is hoping to take advantage of the intensity of the postseason after an unproductive regular season.

Henrik Zetterberg (back) skated for about 30 minutes on Thursday.

"You just have to take it step by step," he said. Zetterberg hopes to resume contact drills before the end of the week. He reiterated that he probably won't be ready to return during the first round of the playoffs.
Apr 17 - 5:45 PM

Nick Foligno (knee) won't play in Game 2 Saturday night.

Coach Todd Richards said that Foligno could possibly be back on Monday for Game 3 back in Columbus.
Apr 17 - 5:33 PM

Nate Prosser will play in his first NHL playoff game Thursday night.

He played four years at Colorado College before starting his professional career and now he'll face the Avalanche. "I still have some buddies around the Denver area who will be coming tonight," Prosser said. "It's always fun coming back to Colorado. I enjoyed my four years down at CC. Great time, great city."

Patrick Kane will be sporting a knee brace when he returns to the lineup on Thursday night.

"Once you get used to it you're fine," Kane said. "There's guys that have probably played with this type of thing their whole career and even guys on our team that have played with it. I think you kind of get used to it as you start playing and skating with it." Kane last played on Mar. 19 but he's ready to return for Game 1 against St. Louis.
