SCOREBOARD
Monday, April 30
Detroit at San Jose (10 p.m. EDT). The series is tied at a game apiece heading to San Jose, where the Sharks won both meetings with the Red Wings by a combined score of 14-5.

STARS
Sunday
-Michal Rozsival, Rangers, scored on a shot from just inside the blue line 16:43 into the second overtime to lift New York to a 2-1 victory over Buffalo.
-Corey Perry, Ducks, scored the go-ahead goal on a power play 7:51 into the third period and Anaheim held off Vancouver 3-2.

PLAYING WITH PAIN
Rangers defenseman Michal Rozsival, banged up in each of the first two games of the playoff series against Buffalo, scored late in the second overtime to give New York a 2-1 win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Sunday. Rozsival injured his knee in the opener, was hurt again in Game 2 on Friday and didn't practice Saturday.

COMING AND GOING
Vancouver got top defenseman Sami Salo back in the lineup on Sunday after he missed the first two games of the semifinals with a torso injury, but Rory Fitzpatrick joined fellow blueliner Kevin Bieksa on the injured list. Coach Alain Vigneault said Saturday that Fitzpatrick ``is a little bit under the weather.''

EXTRA, EXTRA
Buffalo and the New York Rangers played the ninth overtime game of this year's postseason on Sunday, with the Rangers pulling away with a 3-2 win in the second extra session. Of those nine games, six have gone past the first overtime period.

HOME COOKING
San Jose has won nine of its last 11 home games heading into Monday night's Game 3 semifinal matchup against Detroit. The Sharks' only two losses in that span were overtime decisions to Vancouver.

SPEAKING
``It was huge. I'm mad about the second one, where we lost in Buffalo. But tonight was important, and we're back.'' - New York Rangers captain Jaromir Jagr after the Rangers won Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Sunday, 3-2 in double-overtime over Buffalo. The Sabres still lead the series two games to one.
