* Eleven of the first 24 games in the First Round have required overtime (45.8%), with road teams holding a 6-5 edge in those contests. Elias notes that the record for most overtime games in the opening round of the postseason is 17, set during the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs (47 games).

* Elias adds that 11 of the 24 games in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs have seen the winning team overcome a deficit, including seven multi-goal comebacks.

DUCKS OVERCOME THREE-GOAL DEFICIT TO TAKE 3-0 SERIES LEAD
Trailing 4-1, Anaheim tallied three times before Corey Perry (1-1—2) scored at 1:30 of overtime to lift the Ducks to their sixth 3-0 series lead in franchise history and first since the 2015 First Round vs. WPG (4-0 series win).

Perry (33) also moved within two goals of tying Teemu Selanne (35) for the most in franchise playoff history.

MAPLE LEAFS TAKE SERIES LEAD WITH COMEBACK WIN IN OVERTIME . . .
Toronto overcame a 3-1 deficit in the second period and Tyler Bozak scored on a power play at 1:37 of overtime to power the Maple Leafs to a 2-1 series lead against the Capitals.

* Elias notes that Bozak became just the third Maple Leafs player in the expansion era (since 1967-68) to score a power-play goal in overtime in the postseason, joining Mats Sundin (Game 2 of 1996 CQF vs. STL) and Mike Gartner (Game 5 of 1996 CQF vs. STL).

* The Maple Leafs and Capitals have required overtime in all three games so far this series. The 2017 First Round marks just the second time in Maple Leafs franchise history the first three games of a playoff year have required overtime (also 1933 vs. BOS). The Capitals have only played three consecutive postseason overtime contests one other time in franchise history (Games 2-4, 1993 DSF).

. . . AS THEIR ROOKIES CONTINUE TO CONTRIBUTE
Auston Matthews (1-1—2) and William Nylander each scored their first career playoff goals, becoming the third and fourth Maple Leafs rookies to score in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs (also Kasperi Kapanen and Mitch Marner).

* Elias notes that four different Maple Leafs rookies have scored in a playoff year for the first time since 1947 (Vic LynnHowie MeekerJoe Klukay and Gus Mortson).

Ottawa surrendered a 3-0 lead in the second period, but Bobby Ryan (1-1—2) scored on a power play at 5:43 of overtime as the Senators won back-to-back postseason overtime games for the first time in franchise history.

.
* Elias notes that the Senators won a playoff game in which they surrendered a three-goal lead for the first time in franchise history.

* Elias adds that Ryan became the third player in franchise history to score a power-play goal in overtime in the postseason, joining Alexei Yashin (Game 3 of 1998 CQF vs. NJD) and Martin Havlat (Game 5 of 2002 CQF at PHI).

Mike Hoffman (2-0—2) opened the scoring with a highlight-reel, one-handed goal off a rink-long saucer pass from Erik Karlsson and added a second to record his first career multi-goal playoff game.

The only other Penguins player (at any stage of his career) to accomplish the feat: Ron Francis (Game 4 of 1992 DF vs. NYR).

* Elias adds that Guentzel became the first rookie in Penguins history to notch a hat trick in the playoffs and fourth rookie in franchise history to score a postseason overtime goal, joining Michel Briere (Game 4 of 1970 QF at OAK), Jaromir Jagr (Game 2 of 1991 DSF vs. NJD) and Conor Sheary (Game 2 of 2016 F vs. SJS).

* Allen has turned aside 114 of 117 shots through three games, allowing one goal in all three victories (0.91 GAA, .974 SV%). Elias notes that he became the first goaltender in Blues history to win the first three games of a playoff series while allowing no more than one goal in each contest.

* The Blues have not trailed at any point during the series (197:48) and have held the lead for 103:51 of total playing time (52.5%).

OILERS, CANADIENS GRAB 2-1 SERIES LEADS ON THE ROAD
The Oilers and Canadiens – who each lost Game 1 of their respective series at home – took 2-1 series leads via road wins:

* For the second straight game, Cam Talbot (23 SV) recorded a shutout and Zack Kassian scored the winning goal as the Oilers took a 2-1 series lead with a victory over the Sharks at SAP Center. Talbot became the second goaltender in franchise history to register a shutout in consecutive playoff games, joining Curtis Joseph (Games 6-7 of 1998 CQF vs. COL). Kassian became the first Oilers player to score a game-winning goal in consecutive postseason contests since 2006 (Fernando Pisani: Games 5-6 of F vs. CAR).

Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin (1-2—3) registered his 14th career three-point postseason game and leads the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs in scoring with 2-4—6 (3 GP) . . . Elias notes that Blue Jackets defenseman Zach Werenski (19 years, 271 days) became the youngest player in franchise history to score in the playoffs and youngest defenseman on any team to do so since New Jersey’s Adam Larsson (19 years, 170 days) in Game 2 of the 2012 Conference Semifinals at PHI . . . Marc Andre-Fleury (33 SV) earned his 56th career postseason win (all w/ PIT) to tie Tom Barrasso for the most by a goaltender in Penguins history.

Frederik Andersen made 47 saves – including two on Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin late in the first overtime – to record the victory. His 47 saves were six shy of his career high set in Game 2 of the 2015 Conference Finals vs. CHI (53 w/ ANA) and the most by a Maple Leafs goaltender in a playoff game since Ed Belfour had 72 in Game 3 of the 2003 Conference Quarterfinals vs. PHI.

* Defenseman Jake Gardiner logged 40:34, the most time on ice in a game by any player so far this postseason.

* Elias notes that the Senators overcame a multi-goal deficit in the third period to win a playoff game for the second time in franchise history (also Game 4 of 2013 CQF vs. MTL: 3-2 OT W).

* Phaneuf became the fifth defenseman in franchise history to score an overtime goal in the postseason and first since Matt Carkner in Game 5 of the 2010 Conference Quarterfinals at PIT.

* Phaneuf assisted on both third period goals to match a franchise record for points in a playoff game by a defenseman; Wade Redden achieved the feat in Game 3 of the 2006 Conference Quarterfinals at TBL (1-2—3) and Game 1 of the 2006 Conference Semifinals vs. BUF (0-3—3).

PREDATORS LEAVE CHICAGO WITH PAIR OF SHUTOUT WINS
Pekka Rinne turned aside all 30 shots he faced and collected two assists to help the Predators blank the Blackhawks for the second straight game and leave Chicago with a 2-0 series lead. Nashville registered consecutive shutouts in the postseason for the first time in franchise history.

* Nashville became the third team in NHL history to record shutouts in consecutive playoff games in Chicago, joining the Canadiens (Games 3-4 of 1960 SF) and Blues (Games 3-4 of 2002 CQF).

* Rinne became the first goaltender in franchise history to collect two assists in a playoff game and the first on any team to do so since Jose Theodore in Game 3 of the 2004 Conference Quarterfinals vs. BOS (w/ MTL). Rinne became the first netminder to accomplish the feat in a playoff shutout since Tom Barrasso in Game 2 of the 1993 Division Semifinals vs. NJD (w/ PIT).

Ryan Johansen (1-2—3) registered his first three-point game in the postseason, one shy of the franchise record for points in a playoff game set by Paul Kariya in Game 1 of the 2006 Conference Quarterfinals vs. SJS (0-4—4).

GETZLAF GUIDES DUCKS TO 2-0 SERIES LEAD
Anaheim surrendered a 2-0 lead, but Ryan Getzlaf (1-1—2) scored the tiebreaking goal with 4:46 remaining in regulation to guide the Ducks to a 2-0 series lead.

* Getzlaf has collected 1-1—2 in both games of the series and extended his franchise records for playoff assists and points (31-72—103 in 106 GP). He notched his sixth career game-winning goal in the postseason (all w/ ANA); only Teemu Selanne has scored more in franchise history (8).

* The Ducks won their 29th consecutive home game against the Flames – including 22 in the regular season – dating back to their last loss in Game 3 of the 2006 Conference Quarterfinals. The victory extends the longest such streak against a single opponent in NHL history.
