Likely due to a major boxing match up distracting most of the sports media world tonight, there will only be one playoff game today, and it's a matinee.

Yes. I'm still in the NHL. Even I can't believe it!

Joel Ward sealed a Capitals victory with less than two seconds left on the clock in the first game of this series.

Backstrom built up some bad blood on that play with a controversial boarding of Dan Boyle where no penalty was called.

Boyle left the game after the hit, he will be back tonight.

This could be another low event series, like those that plagued the first round with Henrik Lundqvist in fine form and Holtby with the best playoff performance record of all active goalies.

The Ranger's Zuccarello is still out indefinitely. The Caps' Eric Fehr is also still injured. Other roster changes should be minor, but the Rangers may mix up their lines a bit as they try to figure out how to deal with Ovechkin.

There's also an interesting twist on the choice of refs for the game today.

I'm jealous.

Enjoy the game!
