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 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.
