Ah yes, here comes the fun part of the 1st round: where one loss is finally enough to eliminate a team. Tonight, we have 2 games on, both of which could have the loser eliminated.

4:30 pm PDT: Penguins vs Flyers, Game 5. If Pittsburgh wins, they force a Game 6 back in Philadephia. But if Pittsburgh loses, they are eliminated. Viewable on TSN.

5:00 pm PDT: Predators vs Red Wings, Game 5. Another elimination game, amazingly, but this one is more shocking because it's Detroit. A win will keep them alive, and a loss will eliminate them. Viewable on CBC.

Go catfights.
