David Pastrnak had his first career playoff hat trick as the Boston Bruins took a 2-0 series lead with a 7-3 win over the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals Saturday night.

Sharks 3, Ducks 2

Logan Couture led the offense with a goal and an assist, and goalie Martin Jones responded from a first-minute gaffe with a 28-save performance as San Jose claimed another road victory over Anaheim.

The Sharks won both games in Southern California to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference opening-round series.

Anaheim´s Jakob Silfverberg opened the scoring on the game´s first shot just 40 seconds into the affair at Honda Center.

The Sharks got the next three goals, from Marcus Sorensen, Couture and Tomas Hertl, before the Ducks got one back from Hampus Lindholm in the second period.

Neither team scored in the third period.

Nikita Kucherov recorded a goal and two assists, leading Tampa Bay to a victory over visiting New Jersey.

The Lightning own a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference first-round series.

Kucherov recorded his seventh career three-point playoff game.

His goal was his 24th postseason tally, tying Vincent Lecavalier for the second-most in Tampa Bay´s playoff history.

Alex Killorn started and ended Tampa Bay´s four-goal flurry in the second period with a pair of power-play tallies.

Brayden Point recorded a goal and assist and Tyler Johnson added a goal for the Lighting, who got 41 saves from Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Nico Hischier, Sami Vatanen and Blake Coleman scored for New Jersey.

Predators 5, Avalanche 4
