Monday Playoff Open Thread: Elimination Looms

New, comments

It looms, I tell ya. Tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins can close out the Tampa Bay Lightning and the San Jose Sharks can eliminate the Los Angeles Kings. Of course, neither will be easy as the Lightning walloped the Penguins 8-2 on Saturday to stave off elimination and the Kings put three of four pucks past Antti Niemi to earn a win. The Pens and Sharks both lead their series at 3 games to 2.

Both the Penguins and the Sharks will get a chance to eliminate their first round opponent. Will Tampa Bay and Los Angeles push it to a Game 7?
