Stanley Cup Playoffs Scoreboard Watch - May 6, 2011

DETROIT - MAY 4: Patrick Marleau #12 of the San Jose Sharks drives the net as goaltender Jimmy Howard #35 of the Detroit Red Wings makes a pad save in Game Three of the Western Conference Semifinals during the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs on May 4, 2011 at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

It's Friday, folks... Take out your frustrations while following the action in two Game 4's tonight:

San Jose Sharks vs Detroit Red Wings (6:00 p.m. Central on Versus)
I believe that if the Sharks complete the sweep, this would represent the first time that the Predators will have outlasted the Red Wings in the playoffs, correct?

Philadelphia Flyers vs Boston Bruins (7:00 p.m. Central on Versus)
Can the Bruins close out the Flyers in 4? They'll get the chance to do it on home ice tonight.
