A pair of pivotal Game 5s constitutes Friday night's doubleheader of Stanley Cup Playoff action and can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and TSN and RDS in Canada.
Starting off the night at 7:30 p.m. ET, the Philadelphia Flyers try to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday that tied their Eastern Conference quarterfinal-round series at two games apiece.
Once that game concludes, audiences will join the 10 p.m. game between the Anaheim Ducks and Nashville Predators in which the winner will take a 3-2 series lead. The teams have split a pair of games in Anaheim and Nashville to begin the series.
Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
