The first game of the night had Rob’s Blue Jackets headed to Philadelphia to take on Dan’s Flyers. Simon Gagne got the party started with an early goal, and the Flyers held the lead through the first period. In the second, Eric Desjardins took a holding penalty, sending Columbus to the powerplay. Rick Nash tied the game towards the end of the man advantage. Kevyn Adams added a goal later in the second to put the Jackets up 2-1. It didn’t last long; early in the third, David Vyborny was called for unsportsmanlike conduct, and Eric Lindros knotted the game back up on the powerplay. Two minutes later, Rod Brind’Amour broke the tie, and it looked like the Flyers were going to win. Until Rick Nash, once again tied it up with 2:12 remaining. The game went into overtime, where Rod Brind’Amour once again broke a tie, and won the game for the Flyers.

Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Jeremy’s Kings hosted Andy’s Bruins.  The first period was pretty uneventful, but the fun started in the second.  Nathan Horton opened scoring at 3:25 to put Boston up 1-0.  But the Kings struck back thanks to a Nelson Emerson goal, sending the game into the third period tied at 1.  Both teams peppered the opposing goalies with shots (Kings 42, Bruins 34), but both Tim Thomas and Jon Quick refused to budge.  Wayne Gretzky solved Thomas midway through the third to put the Kings up.  Late in the third, the Bruins pulled Thomas for the extra attacker, but Ian Laperriere added an empty netter to give Los Angeles a 3-1 win.  

We had our first blowout of the tournament in Pittsburgh.  Gabbi’s Rangers traveled to take on Joey’s Penguins at Consol Energy Center.  Dave Tippett opened scoring 39 seconds into the game, and he was followed five minutes later by John Cullen.  The Rangers hung in against Pittsburgh for the next 40 minutes, despite only having 16 shots the entire game.  It all unraveled in the third for New York.  Ruslan Fedotenko scored a goal, which was sandwiched around second goals by Cullen and Tippett.  Mario Lemieux added the sixth goal for Pittsburgh to finish the rout.  Tom Barrasso earned the easy 16 save shutout.
