Here are the morning papers for the second round playoff teams:

Eastern Conference:

Montreal (1) versus Philadelphia (6):

Pittsburgh (2) versus New York Rangers (5):

  • Larry Brooks of the New York Post singles out players that were not particularly sharp in yesterday’s 2-0 defeat. The Rangers have been the victims of questionable third-period officiating according to John Dellapina of the New York Daily News.

Western Conference:

Detroit (1) versus Colorado (6):

  • Having blown 2-0 series leads before, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press wonders if the Red Wings have learned from past slip-ups. 11 years after the horrbile limousine crash involving Vladimir Konstantinov, a federal court will hear the lawsuit today between Konstantinov and an Ohio Car Dealership.

San Jose (2) versus Dallas (5):

  • Mark Purdy of the San Jose Mercury News wonders if the Sharks’ 4 minute spell to start the third period was the worst in franchise history. It will take a combination of positivity and desperation for the Sharks to turn the series around according to head coach Ron Wilson.
