Alexander Ovechkin scored the fourth goal of Washington's second-period outburst, leading the visiting Capitals past Montreal 5-1 for a 2-1 lead in their Eastern Conference series.

Semyon Varlamov, who got the nod over Jose Theodore, made 26 saves in his first start of the series for Washington, which has won two in a row after losing the opener 3-2 in overtime.

Bruins 2, Sabres 1: Patrice Bergeron scored the go-ahead goal with just over 6 minutes left to give host Boston a win and a 2-1 lead over Buffalo in their Eastern Conference playoff series.

Mark Recchi bumped Tim Kennedy off the puck in the right corner behind the Buffalo net and fed it to Bergeron, whose quick shot from the right circle beat Ryan Miller.

Kings 5, Canucks 3: Michal Handzus scored two power-play goals, Drew Doughty had a goal and three assists, and host Los Angeles chased Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo during a 5-3 victory over the Canucks, taking a 2-1 series lead in their first home postseason game in eight years.
