The Stat Line Of The Night – 04/27/09 – Jonas Hiller
Total Pro Sports – It was do or die for the San Jose Sharks last night who traveled to Anaheim to take on the Ducks in game 6 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Sharks took an early 1-0 nothing lead but lost all momentum after that and eventually losing the game to the #8 seeded Ducks 4-1.
The player of the game was none other then rookie goaltender Jonas Hiller who made 36 en-route to his first ever Playoff Series win in the NHL. Thus, making him “The Stat Line Of The Night” for Monday April 27th, 2009. Hiller has been solid all series and will hope to continue his solid play in the second round against the Red Wings.
“I think if you ask anyone, we’re not an eight seed,” defenseman Ryan Whitney said. “Everyone in here knows that, and I think now everyone in hockey pretty much sees it, too.”
Jonas Hiller made 36 saves to finish his phenomenal playoff series debut for the Ducks, who won a fight-filled clincher to complete a remarkable playoff upset two years after winning the franchise’s only Stanley Cup.
