NHL: The week in review

Philadelphia became the first team in 35 years - and just the third in NHL history - to rally from a 3-0 deficit when the Flyers came back to beat the Boston Bruins in seven games in Round 2.

Philadelphia became the first team in 35 years - and just the third in NHL history - to rally from a 3-0 deficit when the Flyers came back to beat the Boston Bruins in seven games in Round 2. Hal Gill, the Canadiens defenceman, returned to play in Game 7 against Pittsburgh after missing Game 6 because of a cut on his leg that required 50 stitches to close.

Mike Cammalleri, the Habs winger, led the play-offs with 12 goals through the first rounds, including 11 in Montreal's last 11 games. Jonathan Toews, the Chicago captain, overtook Sidney Crosby, the Pittsburgh captain, for the play-off scoring lead, with 20 points in 12 games. After collecting just two assists in his first five play-off outings, San Jose's Joe Thornton is on a six-game scoring streak with three goals and nine points.
