"There's a fair bit of yapping going on out there [in this series]. I'm always involved."

Monday's NHL Playoff Results

  • East - (1) NYR over (8) OTT, 1-0 (REG): Henrik slams door on 39 shots, Boyle nets 3rd goal in as many games; Rangers lead 2-1
  • East - (2) BOS over (7) WSH, 4-3 (REG): Chara's 3 points (1G), 29 saves by TimThom outlast Caps on road; Bruins lead series 2-1
  • West - (2) STL over (7) SJ, 4-3 (REG): Behind a scorching 3-for-4 powerplay performance, Blues take 2-1 series lead. Sorry Angy :(

Tonight's Minor Distractions

  • West - (3) Phoenix at (6) Chicago, 9 p.m. (CNBC): Series tied 1-1

Ahead For Us

  • Game Three playoff action rolls on: Panthers and Devils from Newark, 7 p.m. (SUN, MSG+, NHLN). The LBC Game Thread fires up right here at 6.
  • Yet another local programming note: this game will be seen on SUN Sports, not FS-FLA. Logic dictates these sister channels should be located relatively close to each other on your dial.
  • If you are indeed using a dial, the Whalers just defeated Montreal in Game Six of the 1986 Adams Division Final. Yes, Dineen is on the ice, about to wrap up a 12 point (6G) performance in what will be ten games.
  • Watch Parties - two of note: the Panthers have Duffy's secured in Plantation, while LBC requests the honor of your presence at Breakaway Bar & Grill at Saveology Iceplex in Coral Springs (tonight's food/drink specials in the thread below).
  • For further series coverage head for SB Nation, while In Lou We Trust handles the tri-state area.
  • Tickets for all remaining games - home and away - still available via TiqIQ (Saturday currently sits at $37 but that isn't going to last)
