In sports, Game 7’s are always a fun experience, especially in the NHL playoffs (the greatest playoffs in sports). With four of the eight first round series already completed, half of the first round will feature Game 6’s. Three of those Game 6’s will be played tonight.
The Pittsburgh Penguins lead 3-2 against the Columbus Blue Jackets and will look to close out their series tonight at 6 p.m. (CST) in Ohio. Following that game, Minnesota hosts the Avalanche at 8 p.m. in a win-or-go-home situation for the Wild. Finally tonight, the Kings will host the Sharks in a Game 6 to conclude Monday’s triple-header.
Tomorrow, only one game is on the schedule. The final Game 6 of the first round will get underway as the Flyers look to keep their season going against the Rangers. The Rangers hold a 3-2 lead in the series and the puck drops in Philadelphia at 6:30 p.m.
In each of these series, the home team needs a win in order to stay alive and force a Game 7. So tell us what you think. Out of the four remaining series in the first round, which are you most confident will go to a Game 7?
