Stanley Cup Playoffs, day twenty-four: Two more possible sweeps; Binghamton versus Portland

There are two games tonight in the NHL playoffs. The Boston Bruins will look to finish off the Philadelphia Flyers and complete a 4-0 series win. It was of course last year that the Bruins blew a 3-0 series lead to the Flyers with the Flyers starting the come back with an overtime win in game four. Tim Thomas will start for Boston, and Sergei Bobrovsky is likely to start for Philadelphia, though it hasn't been announced yet.

The San Jose Sharks will also attempt to finish off a sweep of the Detroit Red Wings as they play game four in Detroit. Last season, the Sharks also led the Red Wings 3-0 before the Red Wings routed the Sharks in game four. The Sharks did go on to win the series in five games though.

Lastly, Robin Lehner, Jared Cowen and the Binghamton Senators will hope to clinch their second round series against the Portland Pirates. Cowen will be playing his first career professional playoff game. Lehner, meanwhile, is 4-0 on the road in his playoff career.
