It was all about response on Saturday. The Toronto Maple Leafs, Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings had it, but the New York Rangers did not.

Responding to a lackluster performance in Game 1 against the Boston Bruins, the Toronto Maple Leafs skated hard for a full 60 minutes and refused to be bullied as they squared the series.

The Ducks had lost home-ice advantage in Game 2 of the series, but they put the Detroit Red Wings down hard as the series moved to Motown.

The defending champion Kings were not about to go down without a fight, either, and they responded on home ice with a shutout of the St. Louis Blues

Henrik Lundqvist blanked the Washington Capitals for more than 60 minutes, but his team's popgun attack kept the Rangers from squaring the series.

Here's a look at the key takeaways from Saturday's Stanley Cup playoff action.
