Playoff Previews - April 20th

Bruins/Canadiens - 7pm CBC, Bruins lead 2-0

This is the bloodbath that no one gets to see.  The Bruins are playing really well against a Canadiens team that is struggling to find some momentum.  The Bruins are going to have to play without Milan Lucic who was suspended for 1 game after his blow to the head of Maxim Lapierre.  The Canadiens are considering putting George Laraque in the lineup to give them that added muscle.

Capitals/Rangers - 7pm Versus, TSN, Rangers lead 2-0

The Rangers head back to New York with a two game lead on the series and all the momentum they can handle.  Henrik Lundqvist is playing extremely well and the Capitals big stars in Alexander Ovechkin and Mike Green just cannot seem to find the back of the net.  It will be critical for the Capitals to get off to a quick start to quiet the Garden crowd and try and bring the series back to Washington.

Blackhawks/Flames - 9:30 pm Versus, TSN, Blackhawks lead 2-0

The Flames need to be able to tap into the Sea of Red that their crowd is going to create at the Saddledome.  They have seemed to have run into a Blackhawk team that is creating all of the chances at the United Center.  Now they have to find a way to win on the road.  This young Blackhawk team has all of the talent in the world but are they going to be able to handle the pressures of the Calgary crowd.
