Norfolk Admirals, NHL playoffs open thread: Sailors, crowns, dogs, & cats

Only two games tonight, thankfully not at the same time.

  • Norfolk Admirals at Manchester Monarchs: Game 4. The Ads have the chance to close out this series tonight. Last game saw the boys from Norfolk finding then losing then finding their form again, but at the expense of a very bad hit to AHL Defenseman of the Year Mark Barberio. The good news is that Barberio was skating yesterday. No word yet on whether he or Tyler Johnson will be in the lineup tonight. As always Radio: Online video: AHL Live. Game starts at 7:00pm ET.
  • Nashville Predators at Phoenix Coyotes: The NHL Quarterfinal round starts with this goalie duel. These two teams are so similar that I refuse to even consider thinking about contemplating making a prediction. Whatever happens, it's gonna happen late for East Coast viewers, since Phoenix has home-ice advantage. DVR is your friend. Game starts at 9:00pm ET on NBCSN.
