Things to watch for

  • Do the Flyers have a puncher's chance?
  • The Panthers folks are calling this their best season ever. Winning a round would be swell.
  • The Wild will be without Parise for a while, and Tyler Seguin is still out.
  • A night after Kobe played his last game, the Staples Center ice crew will turn their attention from salty tears to sweat and blood.

Enjoy yourselves.
