Only a two-day weekend this time, folks. Sucks, doesn’t it?

Anyway, there is postseason hockey awaiting on Friday night, as the New York Rangers host the Tampa Bay Lightning for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final. In a bit of a surprise, New York ran away from Tampa for a 6-2 win in Game 1 on Wednesday night.

Of course, Tampa has this thing where they don’t lose multiple games in a row during the Stanley Cup Playoffs: they’re 17-0 since 2020 following a postseason loss.

So ... good luck with that, Rangers.
