2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Day 5 Open Thread

This was a common sight on Thursday in San Jose. Will tonight bring a repeat? - Ezra Shaw

Four games on the schedule for Sunday, and each one involves a team looking for its first win. How many will get it?

Happy Easter from the NHL, which gave us a day of overtime fireworks yesterday and has an all-day bonanza scheduled today.

The day gets started early with the first game of an NBC doubleheader, as the Rangers look to defend their turf again and go up 2-0 on the Flyers (12:00 p.m., NBC, TSN). Following that, the Peacock ships up to Boston for Game 2 of the Bruins/Red Wings series (3:00 p.m., NBC, TSN), which the Wings lead on the strength of an absolutely sick Pavel Datsyuk goal and a 25-save shutout from Jimmy Howard on Friday night.

After dinner, attention turns to La Belle Province, where the Canadiens take a 2-0 series lead home for Game 3 against a Sun Belt team. Sound familiar? The Lightning will try to pull off the turnaround that the Hurricanes managed eight years ago starting with a win tonight at Bell Centre (7:00 p.m., NBCSN, CBC). Finally, at 10:00, if you can still make it to the fourth game in a row, the Sharks and Kings will renew acquaintances on NBCSN and CBC after a goal-fest Thursday night saw the Sharks put five past Jonathan Quick en route to a 6-3 win and a 1-0 series lead.
