Happy Hump Day, sports fans! Big night in the NBA! Last games of the regular season, Lakers playoff hopes hinging on a couple of games, and seeding battles. There's also a bit of late season hockey, and some leftover baseball from the day to enjoy. Let's take a look (all times Eastern.)

NBA:
Blog Photo - Game On! Sports TV Lineup 4/17/138:00pm - Celtics @ Raptors 
8:00pm - Pistons @ Nets on YES
8:00pm - Hawks @ Knicks on MSG
8:00pm - Cavaliers @ Bobcats on FSCR
8:00pm - Magic @ Heat on SUN
8:00pm - 76ers @ Pacers on FxMW

Apparently if the Lakers lose to the Rockets and/or Utah beats the Grizzlies, the Lakers don't make the playoffs this year.  Both the Rockets and Grizzlies are in the playoffs and are playing for seeding, so their chance to play spoiler actually means something to each team as well. 

The NHL is also full of playoff implications right now, but there are only four games:
7:00pm - Canadiens @ Penguins on RDS, TSN, Root
7:30pm - Sabres @ Bruins on TSN2, NBCSN
9:30pm - Red Wings @ Flames on TSN, FS-D+
10:00pm - Blue Jackets @ Ducks on FS-O, KDOC

And let's peek in on what MLB is doing:
Final - Phillies 0 @ Reds 1
Final - Astros 5 @ Athletics 7
Final - Royals 1 @ Braves 0
Postponed - Rangers @ Cubs
Postponed - Mets @ Rockies
In Progress - Phillies @ Reds

Well that sucks. I'm not sure why they had Smoak round third but whatever. With the way the bats were tonight I guess they felt that was a safer risk.

WTG Mikka Kiprusoff!! You are my hero tonight, and many many more before this.  If Friday is your last game at the Saddledome, here's hoping you finish up the same way you did tonight.

Flames sweep the Detroit Red Wings this year, and win 3-2.

*happy dance*

Flames got the first goal on the Red Wings, but the Wings just tied it up :(
