The Final Countdown: May 25 playoffs thread

Jonathan Daniel

Last night Pittsburgh finished off Ottawa 6-2. It was the first time Dan Bylsma's Pens have won a clinching game at home.

Three major events tonight, including two elimination games.

#6 New York Rangers at #4 Boston Bruins (3-1 BOS).

5:30 Eastern, NBC Sports, TSN, RDS

The Rangers were able to stave off the sweep in Game 4 with an overtime victory thanks to hero Chris Kreider. Here's the kind of quote you want to see out of your best players when they're up against it, from NHL.com:

"We gave ourselves an opportunity to play one more game," goalie Henrik Lundqvist said. "That's our approach now, win [Saturday]. Focus on the good things here, the stuff we've been doing well, feel as good as we can and just start with the first 20. Then we'll see how far it takes us."

Not your captain telling the media "We're fucked!" Brad Richards looks to be a healthy scratch for the second consecutive elimination game. Man, I don't know what's going on with that guy. Maybe we'll find out.

Three Bruins have a point-per-game in the playoffs: Zdeno Chara, Nathan Horton, and some hobbit named Torey Krug. Watch this game tonight just to watch him play, seriously.

#7 detroit red wings at #1 Chicago Blackhawks (3-1 bad guys)

8:00 Eastern, NBC, CBC, RDS

That's right. A non-Finals game in the evening on actual NBC proper. I wrote you a limerick, Hawks: I hope it inspires you to force a Game 6 tonight.

Here's to hoping Chelsea Dagger sings,
and that Corey Crawford leather brings.
Avalanche fans unite
behind Coach Q's team's fight.
Go Chicago! And fuck the red wings!

I mean, for real, if you guys lose tonight the brackets of millions of hockey fans are shredded. DO IT FOR US.
