Cisco NHL Live previews final playoff push

by Matt Sitkoff

There are only 18 games left as the clock ticks down to the end of the regular season. Cisco NHL Live today, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network with Steve Mears and E.J. Hradek, will have all the Stanley Cup Playoff possibilities covered as we head into the final weekend. The Columbus Blue Jackets came up big last night to keep their playoff hopes alive. We'll check in with forward Mark Letestu as he prepares for the season's finale.

The New York Islanders look to solidify their seeding tonight when they wrap up their regular season in Buffalo against the Sabres. Four-time Stanley Cup champ Butch Goring will visit us on the Cisco NHL Arena Cam and tell us how sweet it is to see the Isles back in the postseason again. Plus, it's Friday, so that means Eddie Olyczk will join us to talk about the red -hot playoff races. And NHL Network Analyst Barry Melrose will check in with Barry's Bests including his Mullet of the Year.

Don't forget to submit your #AskEJ questions through Twitter via @NHLNetwork or @EJHradek_NHL, and stick around for the shootout as EJ picks all four games being played on Friday.
