Intermission
OK, you can take a break.

Go get a bite to eat. A cold beverage. Take care of anything else that needs to be done.

The afternoon portion of our playoff quadruple-header is done, and we’re an hour or so away from the start of the evening session, beginning with the Canadiens and Bruins in Boston.

The final score for the two afternoon games: Southeast Division 2, Atlantic Division 0. Tampa Bay stunned a sellout crowd in Pittsburgh by routing the Penguins 8-2 to send that series to Game 6 in Tampa Bay on Monday. Faced with the same situation – win at home to advance – the Washington Capitals succeeded where the Penguins had failed, eliminating the New York Rangers with a 3-1 win in Game 5.

So for now, we’re at intermission. Come on back about 7 p.m. ET for the evening games.
