It wasn’t a stellar return for goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere on Sunday night, but his Anaheim Mighty Ducks built a big enough lead to defeat the Calgary Flames at Pengrowth Saddledome.
The Ducks scored the first three goals of the game and then held on to beat the Flames 4-3 to even their Western Conference best-of-seven series 1-1.
Martin St. Louis spent much of the regular season searching for the form that made him the MVP in 2003-04.
With Tampa Bay trying to avoid falling into an 0-2 hole to start the playoffs, St. Louis found his scoring touch.
The 5-foot-9 forward’s second goal of the game put the Lightning ahead to stay in a 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Sunday night, evening the Eastern Conference series at 1-1.
Jonathan Cheechoo and Paul Kariya switched roles yesterday.
Cheechoo energized San Jose’s power play one game after Kariya did the same thing for Nashville.
Cheechoo scored the Sharks’ first power-play goal and had assists on the last two in San Jose’s 3-0 victory.
