...if this doesn't happen? To refresh memories, this occurred in game three of the ECQF between Detroit and Vancouver. The eighth-seeded Canucks took the first two games in Detroit, with game three tied at one apiece in the final minute of the second period when Lidstrom found the back of the net from 89 feet out. That goal proved to be the winner (and was predicted instantly - and correctly - to change the dynamic of the series), and Detroit would proceed to win the three subsequent games, then the three subsequent series, to take the Cup. Without this goal, do the President's Trophy winners get out of the first round? If not, who faces Carolina in June (bearing in mind that the second round matchups would be Colorado/Vancouver and St. Louis/San Jose)?
