2002 Ottawa s Patrick Lalime records his third consecutive 3-0 shutout over Philadelphia to equal a league record.

2003 Petr Sykora scores 48 seconds into the fifth overtime, and Anaheim outlasts Dallas 4-3 to win the opener of the Western Conference semifinal series. The game is the fourth longest in NHL history.
