2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Day 4 Open Thread

The Avalanche celebrate their overtime win Thursday night. What does Game 2 have in store? - Doug Pensinger

Do we have more overtime in our future? Three Game 2s take you through your Saturday.

You won't need to decide which game to watch today. Three games are on the docket, beginning at 3:00 in St. Louis as the Blues and Blackhawks renew pleasantries. Their triple-overtime marathon Thursday gave the Blues a 1-0 series lead through Alex Steen's game-winner, and Game 2 gets the spotlight treatment on NBC and CBC.

Assuming the game in St. Louis doesn't go to multiple overtimes again, you'll have a chance to grab dinner before the second game of the tripleheader faces off at Consol Energy Center. The Blue Jackets expect R.J. Umberger back for Game 2 of the series they trail 1-0 (7:00 p.m., NBCSN, CBC), courtesy of old friend Brandon Sutter's goal in the third period of Wednesday's game which gave the Penguins a 4-3 win.

The nightcap follows immediately after, as Game 2 of the Wild/Avalanche series gets underway in Denver (9:30 p.m., NBCSN, TSN) with the Avs leading the series 1-0 after Paul Stastny's heroics on Thursday. Let the dulcet tones of John and Tripp serenade your late night.

U.S. announcer schedules (via Awful Announcing):

  • Blackhawks/Blues: Dave Strader, Eddie Olczyk, Brian Engblom
  • Blue Jackets/Penguins: Gord Miller, Pierre McGuire
  • Wild/Avalanche: John Forslund, Tripp Tracy
Game on!
