Preview : Ottawa Senators at Montreal Canadiens, 7 p.m. ET. (Senators lead series 3-1)
The Senators get their first chance to close out the Montreal Canadiens, and they have to like their chances. Carey Price is done for the series. Brian Gionta is done for the year. Brandon Prust and Ryan White are out. Still, the Senators are "fearful", according to Paul MacLean. Maybe it's because they kept winning every time they lost a core guy this year, and they're afraid it will happen to Montreal too?
Preview : New York Islanders at Pittsburgh Penguins, 7 p.m. ET (Series tied 2-2)
Tomas Vokoun gets the start for the Penguins after another shaky outing from Marc-Andre Fleury. Will it be enough to quell the Islanders' sudden momentum? Vokoun has great stats versus the Islanders this season, and he's 3-0. But his playoff record is just 3-8. Can he add a fourth win to both categories? If he can't, the Penguins will head back to Long Island in unthinkable trouble.
