For those of you not watching the Federal election results, there is a Stanley Cup playoff game tonight. The Boston Bruins attempt to take a 2-0 lead back to the hallowed ice of New England. They will play a Flyers team that was humiliated in a 7-3 loss at home in Game One. Note, that as Pepsi is an official NHL sponsor, Zdeno Chara is no longer allowed to drink from a Coke branded bottle on the bench. Brian Boucher will once again start for the Flyers. The Flyers have ended the game with the same goalie as the starter only once in the last four games.

The Bingamton Senators play game four of their series tonight, looking to take a 3-1 lead in their series. Robin Lehner will start once again, Barry Brust will return from injury to backup Lehner.
