Game On! Sports TV Lineup 5/1/13

Playoffs, playoffs, and other fun stuff! [Live Sports Thread]

5/1/13 in NHL   |   Jess   |   32868 respect

This is one of the best times of the year. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of March Madness and of course the NFL so playoff time there is always exciting. But when two major sports post-seasons overlap, it's incredibly exciting, and almost as overwhelming as when the Fall Classic rolls around and we have football and the beginning of hockey all at once. Throw in a few other sports right now and there's a little bit of something for everybody! What have we got tonight? (All times eastern.)

Nahh...  I'm enjoying the Giants & Sharks myself.  3 run homer in the top of the 8th to take a one run lead?  How cool is that?  That soon after the Sharks struck back to tie their playoff game....

Both the Leafs and the Pens scored a PP goal in the first 5 minutes of the game.  The only two possible outcomes happened.  For the Pens they kept right on going.  For the Leafs it turned out to be the kiss of death and that's all they got.

5-0 Pens, congrats to Fleury for his 6th playoff shutout!

Switching back and forth between the Sharks and Giants.  Sharks will get the majority of the tine, however.

NHL on CNBC... now I've seen it all...

Nats/Braves on TV, 4 games on MLB.tv. Will go to bed with the O's game on (West Coast road trips suck).

I may have a problem.

I don't know which hockey game to watch right now - which one is most exciting? I've got it tuned into the Bruins/Leafs game right now but I'll probably switch back over at intermission.

A bit of info...  The MLS games you listed are not MLS games.  The two games involving Canadian teams are playing in the Amway Canadian Championship semi finals.  Not MLS games but three of the 4 teams are MLS squads. 
The Monterrey - Santos game is the CONCACAF Champions League final.  Not an MLS match but MLS teams were involved in the tournament.

Thanks for the heads up - I went ahead and just combined them. :)
