LBC Friday Playoff Game Thread

Justin K. Aller

Two more series get underway tonight as the Rangers visit the Penguins and the Wild hit Chi-Town.

The Broadway Blueshirts will take on Sidney Crosby and the Penguins tonight at CONSOL Energy Center in the Steel City. This will be the fifth playoff matchup, a surprisingly low number, between the two Eastern Conference teams. Pittsburgh has never lost a series to New York in the postseason. The teams split the four games they played in the regular season, with each winning once in the shootout.

Fresh off their stunning game seven overtime win over the Colorado Avalanche, the Minnesota Wild will journey to Chicago's United Center to do battle with the Blackhawks. Chicago needed six games to vanquish the St. Louis Blues. This will be the second time the two clubs have met in the playoffs. The Blackhawks beat Minnesota in five games in the opening round last season, so the Wild will be looking for revenge.

Tonight's action:

New York Rangers at Pittsburgh Penguins 7 p.m. NBCSN

Minnesota Wild at Chicago Blackhawks 9:30 p.m. NBCSN
