Open Thread: Two potential clinchers tonight

It’s a bit of a light schedule tonight for the NHL, with just two games tonight. The Pens will try to extend their series with the Flyers tonight at 7:30 in Pittsburgh. At 8:00pm, the Predators will try to close out their series at home against the Red Wings. We could see both series end tonight.

Across the other sports, the Knicks (7:30 at Cleveland) and Mets (7:00pm vs. SF) are in action as well. Discuss what you want, just keep it civil.

    Knicks @ cleveland a.k.a who cares

    Well Carle makes up for it. 1-0 Flyers. Wonder if their momentum gets stunted if they win and have to wait a week to play again.

    Pens complaining about calls and non-calls? How odd. Hoping they win tonight though…would love to see this be Philly in 7, but six would be ok by me also.

    And Sully makes is 1-1…looks like another one of those games where they are shooting on a shooter tutor.

    Man, Fleury almost looks like he’s diving *away* from the puck.

    Has anyone seen Janne Makkonen’s NHL tribute videos, “Our Way of Life” and “Dare to Dream?” If not, do so, now.

    What should I be more hapier about. The fact that the Penguins are coming back and might beat the Flyers in 7 games or the fact that Nashville won the series against Detroit and Radulov scored his first goal of the playoffs???

    • Chris F says:

      Clearly, neither. Pens need to get eliminated, they’re far more dangerous, I think, than Philadelphia.

      And, who roots against Detroit? C’mon, man, they’re the Red Wings. What’s not to love about that franchise?

    Anyone else have a hard time believing that Kenny Alberts’ voice is really his? Listening to him on MSG radio over the years, I always pictured an old-school stoic sportscaster. He doesn’t look the part at all.
