Here are the morning papers for the four remaining playoff teams:
Pittsburgh (2) versus Philadelphia (6):
- The Penguins realized how tough it was to play against a desperate Philadelphia squad last night, writes Dave Molinari. A sloppy first period was the Penguins' downfall last night, writes Gene Collier. It is amazing to think that last night's loss was only Pittsburgh's second since the post-season began in early April. On the injury front, Gary Roberts is out of the Penguins line-up for the next little while with a pneumonia.
- Scott Hartnell was the man last night, writes Sam Donnellon. The Flyers finally just shot the puck on net, writes Phil Sheridan. Rich Hofmann believes the Flyers' best chance for a comeback lies in the crease with Martin Biron. The Flyers played last night's game without the injured Braydon Coburn.
- Heading into Game 5, the Red Wings want to improve on the power play. Helene St. James believes the Red Wings will finish the job at home in Game 5. Apparently Gary Bettman agrees with the Tomas Holmstrom call in Game 4.
- The Stars think that Game 5 is the perfect time for Marty Turco to break his Mo-town slump, writes Mike Heika. It would probably be a safe bet to assume that Stars coach Dave Tippett will use the same lines in Game 5 as he did at the end of Game 4. Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News warns Marty Turco that there will be just as much Red Wings traffic as ever in Game 5.
