Thursday produced another night of exciting playoff action, with a late win by the Blues and another overtime game, this time with Detroit pulling out the victory after blowing a three goal lead. And the Washington Erats also took Game 1 over the Rangers. But the biggest drama came in Montreal, where Lars Eller took a vicious hit from Ottawa's Eric Gryba and remained motionless on the ice for several minutes. You can watch the video and draw your own conclusions, but a disciplinary hearing has been scheduled for this afternoon.
