Two days off between games is the worst, especially in playoffs. Although it gives players time off to do things like hang out with political buddies, get pooped on by birds, and probably go sight-seeing a bunch, it also makes us all antsy as hell. Hopefully the Bruins are enjoying the lovely weather (maybe?) in the nation's Capital, can it be tomorrow now please.

Tonight, at least, there is some entertaining fun times on the NHL schedule. Two teams poised on the brink of being swept, and I guess there's another game too (look, Rangers/Senators is just sort of boring, okay, Henrik Lundqvist is pretty and Brian Boyle is awesome and that's all I've got.)

After the jump, the theme of this playoffs is faily calls/officiating/punishment, and the internet isn't afraid to yell about that a whole bunch.
