Man, all this rooting for Pacific Division teams has me hungry for some In-N-Out Burger. It's beautiful to watch the Blues and Predators self-destructing before our eyes. Still two potentially long series if the Coyotes or Kings start enjoying the way things have been going as much as I have though.
Fortunately, I'm not their coach.
Just one game today, as the Predators get an extra day to sleep off Raddletits' hangover.
New Jersey Devils (6) vs. Philadelphia Flyers (5) - 7:30 NBCSN: Game 1 of this series on Sunday was closer than it should have been. While the Flyers are happy to have come away with the overtime victory, the Devils have to feel confident that their powerful offensive opponents are beatable. Danny Briere scored both game-winners in extra time, but was kind enough to only allow one to count. Things will get even tougher for the Devils as the questions surrounding the disappearance of Ilya Kovalchuk are cleared up a bit by his being ruled out of action tonight with an undisclosed lower-body injury.
