The Game of the Night: #1 Vancouver Canucks at #8 Los Angeles Kings, Game 4, 10:00 PM Eastern, NBC Sports and CBC. Kings lead series, 3 games to none. (lololol)

Here are the story lines: Daniel Sedin flew to Los Angeles and will be a game-day decision; as of writing this, there hasn't been word as to whether Cory Schneider gets the nod or if Roberto Luongo gets to redeem himself; oh, and the Kings could eliminate the President's Trophy Vancouver Canucks with a win. If the Kings are up going into the second intermission, the Nucks got some work ahead of them. The Kings are 86-0-9 when leading after two.

UPDATE: Danny Boy says he's gonna play, Luongo gets door duty.

Players to watch

Los Angeles: Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams. The line has combined for 11 points this series.

Vancouver: The Net. Who's gonna be manning it?

The "Torts Show" Game - #1 New York Rangers at #8 Ottawa Senators, Game 4, 7:30 pm Eastern, CNBC & CBC. Rangers lead series, 2 games to 1.

Matt Carkner was Shanabanned for Game 3, but he's expected to be back for the Sens. Daniel Alfredsson has had a setback with his concussion, so he might be out for the Sens. Tom-A-to, to-mah-to. Okay, not really, but therefore aliens. Funny little stat: both teams have sucked super duper hard on the power play. Rangers are 1-for-11 and Senators are 1-for-10. Oops.

Players to watch

New York: Brian Boyle. The man of the hour has three goals this series already.

Ottawa: I don't know. Pick someone.

The "I Don't Like Any of Them" Game: #4 Pittsburgh Penguins at #5 Philadelphia Flyers, Game 4, 7:30 Eastern, NBC Sports Network and CBC (I think CBC...Preview isn't sayin). Flyers lead series, 3 games to none. (lololol)

Let the blood bath continue! There were some words exchanged in the media and suspensions handed out. Oh and the Flyers could sweep the Penguins tonight. Won't Bettman hate that?

Players to watch

The refs. They seriously better contain this game or someone is really going to get hurt. Just sayin.
