This is the real deal. The best teams have emerged from the drudgery of the preliminary rounds and now we get to see the best of the NHL play their best hockey.

Unless they fuck it up horribly.

Tonight it's the Penguins vs. the Lightning. Who are you rooting for? PHIL!? Jonathan Drouin? Stamkos?

Typical Lazy Kessel not skating! He was probably out eating hot dogs (topped with raw onions, pickles, mustard and hot sauce, like God intended)!

Lightning @ Penguins
8:00 PM EDT

Also keep your eyes out in the AHL Eastern Conference semi-final. The Hershey Bears (Capitals affiliate) could move on to the conference final tonight. They would be the team the Marlies will play if they advance.

Tonight's winner will be:

The Penguins.21
The hot dog vendor near the Consol Energy Center.94
The Lightning.35
