Fun fact: Today's Jerks/Leafs game will be the first Double Elimination Game 5 since April 15th, 1986, which had two Game 5s in a Best of 5.

Registration is open now for the Bracket Challenge.. Can't do the brackets yet... But SOON.. after today's games are done and the folks at NHL.com actually punch in the info for the first 8 match-ups, up to the start of the first playoff broadcast (on probably Tuesday)... **A smallish window.**
Anyway, I've re-up'd the "Goon Juice Aficionados" league..  password "Fark234"
Join here:  https://bracketchallenge.nhl.com/leag​u​es/goon-juice-aficionados
You will also need an NHL.com ID, *fill our your bio first or be among the Undifined* and because domains, sign in in both places if/when you create a new account.

Also
Special Agent has done a league with the same name and password at the Hat Trick Challenge. There will be a new segment of play begin with the start of the actual playoffs on (probably) Tuesday so everyone kinda gets a fresh start then. Make sure you get your picks done before first broadcast starts, the questions lock with the start of the broadcast to do with that question, already missed 2 points with that myself in this return-to-play segment.
Here for HTC: https://hattrick.nhl.com/#/league/2942 which you will have to copy pasta because [hashtag] reasons.

There was the Phantom Game 7s thread. Still epic.

Similar to yesterday, I don't think the Caps or Bruins care too much which of the Islanders or Hurricanes they will play in the next round. Could be a dull game.

Blues/Stars face a dilemma: win and get the Flames, lose and play Canucks. I don't know if either team would have a preference. Calgary and Vancouver play different styles and might present challenges they would wish to avoid. Who knows?

As for the Leafs, I hope they play like they did in Game 2 (or the first half of Game 3), rather than the way they did for the majority of Game 4.

Neither the Caps nor the Bruins have won a game in the round robin, with the Bruins looking particularly wretched, so my hope is both teams will use this game as a desperate attempt to get their shiat together and we'll get some excitement from that.

Even if the thought that they are using these games as an extended training camp is true they're both in serious trouble.  The 'Canes are just big and fast enough to get the upset and any series with the Isles is likely to be long.

Bruins dominated the period, but can't get one by Holtby. Caps get one decent chance and make it count.
I do like the fact that Boston is playing like they care.

Bruins were better team in the first, but Oshie stole the puck from Chara and scored late.
