St. Louis at San Jose (3 p.m. EDT). The underdog Sharks look to close out their Western Conference series against the Presidents' Cup winners.
-- Brett Hull, Stars, scored the series-clinching goal with 5:03 remaining as Dallas beat Edmonton 3-2.
-- Peter Forsberg, Avalanche, scored his first goal of the playoffs, a series clincher, leading Colorado past Phoenix 2-1.
Washington forward Chris Simon got a pair in the first period of a 2-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Friday night -- a pair of television cameras. Sent off the ice for slashing, Simon flung a spare puck over the glass and then booted the two TV cameras that sit at the foot of the penalty box. He was given a 10-minute misconduct penalty.
Jaromir Jagr accidentally scored the series-winner with a pass giving Pittsburgh a 2-1 victory over Washington on Friday night. Jagr's cross-ice feed was deflected into the net by Washington defenseman Calle Johansson. Johansson let out a cry of disbelief, then stood with his stick and hands on his knees for several seconds after realizing he had knocked in the goal.
Chris Pronger spent only two minutes in the penalty box for the Blues in their 5-3 Game 5 win over the Sharks on Friday night. Pronger spent 24 minutes in the box in the first four games of the series.
Edmonton goalie Tommy Salo, who stopped 24 shots in a 3-2 series-ending loss to Dallas, fell to 1-8 in the playoffs -- with all the games against the Stars. This is the third straight year Dallas has eliminated the Oilers from the playoffs.
The Phoenix Coyotes lost their 10th straight playoff series, including when the franchise was in Winnipeg, with a 2-1 Game 5 loss to Colorado on Friday night.
''What do you want me to say -- that I was so lucky? You have to be lucky to win. If they would have scored a goal and we would lose you guys would have said that we got outplayed and we didn't have a good team. It happens. It's hockey. Of course, we were lucky. We're going to take it.'' -- Jaromir Jagr on his series-winning goal, a pass deflected into the net by Washington's Calle Johansson in Pittsburgh's 2-1 Game 5 victory over the Capitals on Friday night.
