April 17, 2017
Corey Perry scored 1:30 into overtime and the visiting Ducks rallied from three goals down to beat the Calgary Flames 5-4 Monday night, taking a 3-0 series lead in the Western Conference first-round series. Kevin Fiala scored on a backhander 16:44 into overtime as host Nashville completed its comeback from a two-goal third-period deficit to take a 3-0 series lead on Chicago — the West’s top seed. Tyler Bozak scored 1:37 into overtime to cap host Toronto’s comeback from two goals down in the second period as the Maple Leafs defeated Washington — the Eastern Conference’s top seed — to take a 2-1 lead in the series. “Obviously now, if you talk to our guys, our guys think they’re a good hockey team,” Toronto head coach Mike Babcock said. Bobby Ryan scored on a tip-in on a power play 5:43 into overtime as visiting Ottawa took a 2-1 lead in the East series. “I always say that you make your money during the season, but you make your reputation in the playoffs, and right now he’s showing everybody that he’s a gamer,” Ottawa head coach Guy Boucher said of Ryan. The Bruins had rallied from a 3-0 deficit with three goals in second period, tying the game on a power-play goal by David Pastrnak.
