Today we will be previewing two games, one on the NHL Playoff slate and another on the MLB slate.

NHL Playoffs:

Lightning @ Rangers (Series tied 2-2)

Following each team winning both of their matchups at home, the Tampa Bay Lightning will travel back to Madison Square Garden to take on the New York Rangers in a pivotal game 5. The Rangers have won their last 8 home playoff games at the Garden, tying a franchise record from 1939. It’s the longest home winning streak in the playoffs since the Kings in 2013. Nikita Kucherov has scored 7 goals for Tampa Bay in the 2022 playoffs, and 1 in each of their last 3 games. Puck will drop at 8 PM Eastern Time for game 5 in New York tonight.

Dodgers @ White Sox

With the series tied at 1-1, The Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox will determine a series winner tonight at Guaranteed Rate Field. Both game 1 and 2 of the series have been low scoring affairs, with the Sox winning 4-0 in game 1 and the Dodgers winning 4-1 yesterday in game 2.
