There were four games on the NHL schedule on Thursday, and each one provided the excitement and physical play we expect from playoff hockey.

This was the highest-scoring night of the postseason thus far, with an average of 5.5 goals in each game. Not only did fans get to watch plenty of offense, three of the four matchups were decided in the third period or overtime, which created some great late-game drama.

Let's take a look at the biggest takeaways from a thrilling Day 3 of the 2013 NHL playoffs.

But first, here are the scores of Thursday's games:

  • Washington 3, Rangers 1 (Capitals lead series 1-0)
  • Ottawa 4, Montreal 2 (Senators lead series 1-0)
  • St. Louis 2, Los Angeles 1 (Blues lead series 2-0)
  • Detroit 5, Anaheim 4 (Series tied 1-1)
