More semifinal matchups that matter

MARTIN BIRON ( Flyers) VS. CAREY PRICE ( Canadiens)
If Biron, 30, continues to outplay opposing goalie Price, 20, Philadelphia will pull off an upset of Montreal.

PATRICK MARLEAU ( Sharks) VS. BRENDEN MORROW ( Stars)
San Jose's center started poorly, but Marleau has a chance to outduel his opposite captain if he picks up his game.

JAROMIR JAGR ( Rangers) VS. JARKKO RUUTU ( Penguins)
Forward Ruutu played with composure while remaining aggressive, and his Pens went up 2--0.
