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.
I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
