Will Baron take the Stanley Cup?

Hey, Stammer, could you stop ruining my bracket and start perfecting my love life?

It's do or die time for Tampa.

They were my favourite to win the Eastern conference, but Mrazek and the plucky Red Wings had something else in mind, and tonight the Lightning face elimination, ruining my playoff bracket! BOOOOO! But there is no way Bishop is done yet. This will be a fantastic game to watch; but not the only one.

Islanders @ Capitals

7:30 PM EST, SN, NBC-SN, TVA, MSG+

This could be the most exciting game to date in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Both teams are tied with three win so the series will be decided tonight. For the Islanders winning means one last chance to keep the spirit of Nassau Coliseum alive. For the Capitals, winning keeps up the hopes of advancing to the conference finals for the first time since Ron Wilson brought them through in 1998. Hanta Yo, baby!

This is going to be the most exciting night of NHL hockey so far in the playoffs. So strap yourselves in, and get ready for the ride!
