Tuesday @ 8pm v. 9pm

What will you be watching?

At 8pm is game 6 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals and at 9pm is game 3 of the NBA Finals.

Only 4 even-strength goals by the Penguins against the Red Wings in 5 games. I thought they had an unstoppable offense? Let's hope Pittsburg can create some better opportunities and let's see if Crosby, Malkin, Guerin, & Staal play HUGE in a elimination game. The difference between these two teams is Defense, and DEFENSE wins championships. But, Pitt won its only 2 games on their ice already, so if this series goes to a seventh game in Detroit it should be one to remember.

The Lakers feel they haven't even played their best basketball, and they won game one by 25 points. Overtime of game two was disastrous fot the Magic. I wrote that the Magic cannot win without getting Dwight the ball. Case in point, the last 8 possessions of overtime Howard touched the rock ZERO times. I don't even want to get started on Van Gundy's substitution patterns. He looks lost since Nelson's return, who looks to be playing at like 83%.

You will be able to get the first period of game 6 in before game 3 starts, so please don't pass on the fastest game on the planet. You will enjoy! And even if you do it because your friends force hockey upon you; this should be the most physical game yet, so you definitely don't want to miss a huge check that freed up Crosby for a breakaway.

Don't forget also at 7:10 Cardinals v. Marlins in an awesome pitching duel. Marlins ace Josh Johnson head-2-head with Cardinals ace and former Cy Young winner Chris Carpenter.
STL: Carpenter (4-0) 0.71 ERA
FLA: Johnson (5-1) 2.63 ERA
