Last night’s game was a tough one, but the Hawks still lead the series

Los Angeles Kings-2 Chicago Blackhawks-1 (Blackhawks lead the series 2-1)

The Hawks look like they had Jet lag and didn’t find their legs until the third period which was too little too late with the help of some questionable calls by the men wearing  black and white.

Pittsburgh Penguins at Boston Bruins 7pm (Boston leads the series 2-0)

The Penguins will have to win on the road to extend the series and be prepared to hear that the last time these two teams met in the ECF the Penguins came back from 0-2.  The problem was Jagr was wearing a Penguins jersey (and 20 years younger) and Super Mario was on that team. Will Sidney Crosby be able to hold up to those legends and bring the Pens back?
