Blog Photo - Game On! Sports TV Lineup 4/22/13Greetings, sports fans, and Happy Monday! It may still be early for baseball, but we've got some NBA playoffs tonight, as well as NHL playoff implications.

We usually have a separate thread for the NHL games, but since there's not a lot going on tonight in any of the sports, we'd include our usual "NHL Pregame Show" in tonight's All-Sports thread. My co-host BK (kramer) will be joining me to give our picks for those games. 

Let's see what's on the menu tonight...(as always, all times eastern.)

Blog Photo - Game On! Sports TV Lineup 4/22/13
NBA:

8:00pm
Chicago Bulls @ Brooklyn Nets on TNT

10:30pm
Memphis Grizzlies @ LA Clippers on TNT







MLB:
5:05pm - Mariners (Hernandez) @ Astros (Peacock)
6:35pm - Athletics (Griffin) @ Red Sox (Doubront) on NESN
7:00pm - Yankees (Sabathia) @ Rays (Moore) on ESPN/WatchESPN
7:05pm - Blue Jays (Happ) @ Orioles (Tillman) 
7:05pm - Cardinals (Miller) @ Nationals (Haren)
7:05pm - Pirates (Burnett) @ Phillies (Pettibone) on CSN
7:10pm - Cubs (Wood) @ Reds (Leake) on FOX OHIO
8:10pm - Indians (Masterson) @ White Sox (Axelrod) on WCIU
10:05pm - Rangers (Holland) @ Angels (Blanton) on FOX WEST
10:10pm - Brewers (Lohse) @ Padres (Marquis)
10:15pm - Diamondbacks (Miley) @ Giants (Vogelsong)

NHL:
7:00pm - Jets @ Sabres on TSN-JETS, MSG-B
Picks:
BK: Buffalo is done, but they can still spoil the party for the Jets. That said, I'm still taking the road team to win this one.

Jess: I wouldn't be surprised to see the Sabres pull off a win at home tonight.

7:30pm - Penguins @ Senators on ROOT, SNET-E, TVA
Picks:
BK: Looks to me like the Pens are doing just what I expected with this game. Beau Bennett, Kris Letang, and Fleury are all staying in Pgh for various reasons and even if Crosby, Neal, and Martin are ready they're not on the trip. This one could get ugly because the Sens are ticked off at Cooke still thinking he purposely injured Karlsson. Pens win this one and shut up the Sens and their crybaby GM once and for all! /end rant

Jess: Uhm...what he said.

7:30pm - Coyotes @ Red Wings on RDS, TSN, NBCSN, FS-D
Picks:
BK: Just to play devil's advocate, I'm calling the upset and taking Phoenix in this one.

Jess:I like the way you think, BK. However, the Red Wings need 4 pts to overtake Columbus for the 8th spot in the playoffs and I just can't see them dropping a game tonight with the post season coming up so quickly and the fact that they just. won't. go away!

9:30pm - Ducks @ Oilers on KDOC, SNET-W
Picks:
BK: Wait, this goofy s*** again?! Ducks won last night and they'll win it again tonight.

Jess: Yes, this goofy ish again. I'm hopeful about this game, even though the Ducks have been ticking me off lately. They looked very good after the first period last night. I hope they carry that momentum with them tonight.

10:00pm - Blackhawks @ Canucks on NHLN-US, CSN-CH, SNET-P
Picks:
BK: Hawks win the night cap, that's all folks!

Jess: The Canucks are trying to lock up their division. The Blackhawks are going to have a fight on their hands tonight! I think those with NHL Network are in for a treat. Even if you're just a casual fan, I recommend tuning in to this game. I'm calling the upset.
 
And as always with our exclusive NHL threads, I like to kick off our week with a little aggression - check out the best hits from last week's NHL battles!

Cardinals get another very strong outing from one of their young guns and take the 1st game of the series with the Nats.

And all hail King Felix for getting his 100th career win

4/22/13   |   Jess   |   32854 respect

Oh and great news for the Seahawks (I know NFL isn't in the lineup but I don't care) - Bam Bam Kam signed a 4-yr extension today! 

4/22/13   |   Jess   |   32854 respect

So Felix finally got his #100th win - I'm sure the fact that he went up against the Astros helped a bit. He was pulled from the game after 93 pitches with a stiff back (just a precaution, they're saying). Hopefully Kuma can get a 2nd win in a row tomorrow! 

Ducks are holding on in Edmonton...so far cheeky

The Sens/Pens game got a little out of control as I expected it to.  The Pens found a way to win, but aside from that Chris Neil should be suspended.  If they're trying to crack down on head shots like this, a message needs to be sent to a guy who was 20 feet away from the play and came charging in and elbowing Simon Despres in the head (aimed right at the head by the way) and put him face first into the glass.  That's a d-bag move from one of the dirtiest players in the NHL.

A few years ago when we got our HD DirecTV receiver I asked my husband "how much difference does HD really make? We already have a LCD TV, is it really that big of a deal?" Now as I sit here having to watch the Edmonton broadcast - no HD - I'm pouting throughout the entire Ducks game because the picture quality is absolutely awful. I've become spoiled.

I'm sorry guys, I just can't get into baseball until the snow melts and there is actually baseball being played here.  I'm a hockey chick!

4/22/13   |   Eric_   |   7716 respect

O's won on a walk-off single in the 9th by Markakis, aided by a hit by pitch and an error in the inning. Toronto has had some brutal losses lately.

Cubs/Reds are in extra innings, after Carlos Marmol somehow didn't lose the game in the 9th.

4/22/13   |   Jess   |   32854 respect

I am diggin both of my teams right now. Still nervous though...anything can happen.

4/22/13   |   Eric_   |   7716 respect

Lots of ballgames going down to the wire right now.

4/22/13   |   Debi_L   |   11281 respect

Just got in from a road trip to GP and I've got the Coyotes and the Wings on.  Wings dominating. :(

Phoenix looks.......clumsy??

4/22/13   |   Jess   |   32854 respect

I'll be going back and forth between the M's and Ducks here in a bit. For now it's just the Mariners though!

4/22/13   |   Eric_   |   7716 respect

O's game on TV, with an eye on the Nats game on TV. Cubs-Reds and M's-Astros on MLB.tv. Might check out the hoops at some point.

4/22/13   |   Dan_B   |   1066 respect

I'm watching the Yankees-Rays game (for now). 

4/22/13   |   Jess   |   32854 respect

Just a note about that video - one of my favorite things about those huge hits is that most of the time the victim gets right back up like nothing happens and gets right back into the play. Awesome.
