2007 NHL Playoffs Recap and Video Highlights - May 12th

1-1 last night and 1-2 for the first two games of round 3. Detroit managed to win game 1 with some inspired play by the Dominator and another dominating performance from Niklas Lidstrom. Tonight Buffalo is already desperate to win a game.

Tonights Game :

Ottawa Senators (1) at Buffalo Sabres (0) : Believe it or not it is already do or die time for the Sabres. If they go down 2-0 in the series at home their odds of getting to the final round are slim indeed. Tonight the Sabres need their leaders to step up. Keep an eye on Chris Drury tonight, he will lead the Sabres by example and Buffalo will post a convincing win in game 2.

Last Nights Game :

Anaheim Ducks 1 (0) at Detroit Red Wings 2 (1) : Detroit got great performances from key players last night. Dominik Hasek and Niklas Lidstrom stepped up and ensured that the Wings would win despite the fact that they only managed 19 shots on Anaheim. The Ducks tried to physically dominate the Wings last night but it didn't seem to work. Both of Detroit's goals were lucky deflections and both went off Francois Beauchemin before entering the net. Expect the Ducks to come after Detroit even harder in game 2.
