I'm sure NBC doesn't want this match-up. They are probably hoping for a Blackhawks-Rangers final.
I'd say Doc Emmerich might be biased against the Caps tonight, but I think he's better than that, plus, Washington is semi-marketable team for NBC
. Lord knows they've tried like hell to make the most of Ovechkin. Of course, if you ask the author of this article, there's no way in hell the Caps win tonight:
I'd prefer to see Chicago take down Anaheim, as there doesn't seem to be one thing about Anaheim that is remotely exciting. I get that they play hockey really well, and they are probably heavy favorites in this series, but if they make the Finals, I will probably check out and not watch.

Canada's Cup hopes are gone with 4-1 Tampa win over Montrea
Tampa looked like a legitimate Cup contender last night. Bishop probably had his best game of the playoffs (so far), and that trap defense just shut down any offense Montreal thought they had in them.
