NHL Playoffs Open Thread for Tuesday, April 24th.

Willard's dream.

Just one game on the schedule tonight as we get closer to wrapping up the first round. The West's round 2 is already decided, as St. Louis will welcome the Los Angeles Kings and the Predators will go to Phoenix to take on the Coyotes. The East still has three open series going on and only one is playing tonight.

Florida Panthers (3) vs. New Jersey Devils (6) - 7:30 NBCSN: The Panthers dropped a 3-0 shutout on the Devils in Game 5 to set themselves up for two shots at killing off the Devils and advancing into the 2nd round. In that game, Tomas Kopecky scored a goal without putting the puck in the net, which sums up his two-cup-ring career pretty perfectly. Fortunately, New Jersey won't have to worry about any of their own fans embarrassing the organization in trying to get the Panthers in trouble by throwing rats on the ice during game play. Instead, they have to worry about losing a series to a team they finished 8 points ahead of in the standings.
