Stanley Cup Playoffs Channel Surfing: May 18th Edition

Channel Surfing is Too Many Men On The Site’s quick guide to tonight’s Stanley Cup Playoffs action, as well as any other interesting broadcasts in the world of hockey. Included is a list of the scheduled games, game notes, as well as a pregame warm up song.


Los Angeles Kings @ Chicago Blackhawks 3:00 PM NBC [Series: Tied 0-0]

Last Night’s Games:

New York Rangers 7 Montreal Canadiens 2 [Series: NYR 1-0]

Noteable Noteables:

  • The Western Conference Final features the two teams that have won the Stanley Cup in the last two seasons, and is also a rematch of last year’s Western Conference Final. The Chicago Blackhawks won that series with the Los Angeles Kings in five games. This will be the first non-California based team that the Kings will face during the post-season this year.
  • Los Angeles has fallen behind in the first two rounds of the playoffs, only to rally later in the series and string several wins together. They will need a less streaky performance if they hope to match up with the Blackhawks.
  • The Chicago Blackhawks got a few days of rest after defeating the Minnesota Wild in six games. Despite the victory, the Wild gave the Blackhawks a stronger fight than most expected. This is a better Los Angeles Kings team than last year, so Chicago is likely not expecting an easy five game exit from the Kings this time around.
