In Game 3, Akira Schmid backstopped the Devils with an impressive performance in net, the penalty kill started to click and Dougie Hamilton finished off the Rangers in overtime and gave the Devils a 2-1 win on Saturday. Devils are in the series now, and the Rangers have a 2-1 series lead. [Devils NHL]

How Akira got his first career playoff start:

Mark Lazerus: “By his statistical standards, Hughes had a pretty typical night. But it was unquestionably the biggest game of his career, and the biggest goal of his career, because it was his first playoff win. Undoubtedly the first of many.” [The Athletic ($)]

Now that’s a stat:

Sean McIndoe on the NHL’s replay system after the ending to Friday night’s Game 3 between the Kings and Oilers: “Friday won’t be the last time we have this argument, and if it happens later in this series with the roles reversed then everyone will switch sides. We’ll keep stopping the games, we’ll keep killing the excitement of the biggest moments, and we’ll keep making fans even angrier than they already would be. All of this apparently makes sense to someone, somewhere. We have to get it right, after all, even if it always ends up feeling wrong.” [The Athletic ($)]
