Patrick Maroon scored his first goal of the postseason in a 4-2 loss to Dallas on Wednesday night.

The Ducks also received a goal from blueliner Bryan Allen in the first period, staking them to a 2-0 lead, but they weren't able to hang on as they eventually lost by a 4-2 mark. Playing on the top line in place of the injured Ryan Getzlaf, Mathieu Perreault picked up an assist in the loss.

Anaheim goaltender was chased by the Stars on Wednesday after he allowed four goals on 25 shots in a 4-2 loss.

Andersen was lifted midway through the third period and replaced by Jonas Hiller, who faced only one shot in his relief appearance. It's anybody's guess who will be between the pipes for Anaheim in Game 5, as Andersen, Hiller and John Gibson are all in the running for the opportunity.

Jamie Benn potted his third goal of the postseason Wednesday as the Stars defeated Anaheim by a score of 4-2.

Benn has carried his excellent regular season directly into the playoffs as he and linemate Tyler Seguin continue to make beautiful music together. Vernon Fiddler, Cody Eakin and Alex Goligoski all scored goals for Dallas in the victory.

Kari Lehtonen was solid in goal for the Stars Wednesday as they outlasted Anaheim to earn a 4-2 victory in Game 4 of their opening round playoff series.

Lehtonen turned aside 21 of 23 shots in the victory, during which Dallas trailed by a score of 2-0 before mounting their comeback. The series shifts back to Anaheim for Game 5 on Friday.

Chris Kunitz scored a goal for the Penguins in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

Kunitz clearly played his best game of the postseason, racking up five shots on goal in addition to his power play marker. James Neal and Craig Adams also found the back of the net for the Pens in the loss while Paul Martin added a pair of assists.

Marc-Andre Fleury won't soon forget the difficulties he encountered in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss in Columbus in Game 4 of their first round playoff series.

Fleury turned away 42 of 46 shots in the game, which is respectable on its own, but his misplay of a puck behind his net with under 30 seconds to play in the contest led to Brandon Dubinsky's tying goal before Nick Foligno completed the nightmare with the overtime winner. He'll get a chance to redeem himself when the series shifts back to Pittsburgh for Game 5.

Sergei Bobrovsky shook off a slow start to Wednesday's game before earning a 4-3 overtime decision against the Penguins in Game 4 of their opening round playoff series.

Bobrovsky stumbled through the first 20 minutes of the contest, but he eventually settled down and held the fort as his teammates mounted a triumphant comeback. He allowed three goals on 25 shots in the outing, which brings his playoff GAA to 3.21 and his save percentage to an even .900.

Nick Foligno played hero for the Blue Jackets Wednesday as his overtime winner sealed a 4-3 victory over the Penguins.

In one of the best games of the young postseason, Columbus fell behind 3-0 in the first period of this contest only to tie it in the final minute before Foligno capped things off. Ryan Johansen, Brandon Dubinsky and Boone Jenner all scored goals for the Jackets, who have now drawn even with Pittsburgh in the series through four games.

Ryan Murray (undisclosed) is officially listed as a scratch on Wednesday.

That was expected after Murray didn't take part in the pregame warmups. Murray also wasn't able to participate in the team's full Wednesday morning skate. He has an assist in three playoff games and was averaging 25:17 minutes per contest.

It looks like Ryan Murray will be scratched on Wednesday.

Murray left the Blue Jackets' Wednesday morning practice early and isn't on for the pregame warmups. That's a big change given that he was averaging 25:17 minutes per contest in the playoffs.

Eddie Lack will not join Team Sweden for the 2014 World Championship.

Lack got a lot of work after the Canucks traded Roberto Luongo. Lack's also expected to start the 2014-15 campaign as the Canucks' starting goaltender and he plans to stay in Vancouver over the summer to train.

It seems safe to say that Red Wings coach Mike Babcock wants to see his team shoot the puck more in their first round series against Boston.

When assessing Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask's performance thus far, Babcock remarked that he looked good in warmups "where he's getting his most shots." Rask only had to face 24 shots in Game 1 and 23 in Game 3, but Detroit manage to get 35 shots on goal in Game 2.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter vowed that his team won't go away quietly against the Sharks.

Given that San Jose has a 3-0 series lead, putting up a good fight is about all Los Angeles can hope for. The Kings did do significantly better in Game 3 after being blown out in the first two contests of this series, but only three teams in the history of the NHL have outcome a deficit this big.
Apr 23 - 5:13 PM

Paul Carey will be a healthy scratch on Thursday.

Carey hasn't logged more than 4:48 minutes in a single contest in the 2014 playoffs. He had no points in 12 regular season games.
Apr 23 - 4:28 PM

Joey Hishon will play in Game 4 on Thursday.

Hishon had 10 goals and 24 points in 50 AHL games in 2013-14. This will be his first career NHL contest after being taken with the 17th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
