Two teams faced elimination last night in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. One staved off defeat, the other are the Detroit Red Wings.
Pittsburgh, once doe 3-0 to the Flyers won their second straight elimination game and forced a game 6 back in Philadelphia Sunday.
In Nashville, the Red Wings had no answer for Predator goalie Pekka Rinne, and fell four games to one. This was an early exit for Detroit, which has won four Stanley Cups and played in two more finals since the 1994-95 season. The Red Wings become the first team to exit these playoffs, and Nashville will wait to see who they play in the conference semis.
