The Tampa Bay Lightning knocked out the Detroit Red Wings for the second consecutive year, and on a side note, it could be the last time we see Pavel Datsyuk play in an NHL game, which obviously isn't the nicest way for a player to finish his career. The Chicago Blackhawks kept themselves alive with a really ugly goal in a double overtime that sparked questions about why exactly the league would start a game at 8:30 P.M. Central Time. Evgeni Malkin, despite ruining all the chemistry, pounded the crap out of the New York Rangers to make up for the fact that he singlehandedly messed up the Penguins' second game of the series with his lack of regard for team chemistry. Oh yeah, and the Nashville Predators might be on their way to losing a playoff series after being up 2-0 for the first time in franchise history.

The Detroit Red Wings have dug themselves into a deep hole heading into tonight's game, as they are looking at a 3-1 deficit against the Lightning. However, they aren't the only team stuck in a rut, as five teams are facing elimination right now, and we could see up to seven, depending on how the Pittsburgh-New York and Anaheim-Nashville games go tonight.
