Stuff To Tune In To And Zone Out On For May 12th


NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Two Games Six on the schedule tonight. First up is Boston Bruins at Carolina Hurricanes (7:00 ET). The Bruins need this one to get the series back to Boston and with Aaron Ward playing tonight despite concerns he might not, I like their chances. Next up is Detroit Red Wings at Anaheim Ducks (10:00 ET). The Wings are up 3-2 so Anaheim better take care of business at home. [Versus]

NBA Playoffs. On the NBA side, we have two Games Five. Orlando Magic at Boston Celtics (8:00 ET). Can Boston secure a 3-2 series lead? Will “Big Baby” Davis knock over an elderly woman standing courtside? Can it be any more irritating that Boston fans will have to decide whether to watch the Celtics or Bruins? Or do they have picture-in-picture? I don’t know, but it’s something to think about. And for a nightcap, Houston Rockets at Los Angeles Lakers (10:30 ET). I can’t be in the minority that wishes the Rockets pull this off, right? [TNT]

Why is this shit even on a sports network? Madden Challenge. Perfect for when autoerotic asphyxiation loses its fun. [ESPN2, 9:00 ET]

Always good to flip back and forth to. Back-to-back-to-back-to-back episodes of The Family Guy, followed up by an episode of The Office and a brand-spanking new episode of My Boys. I have never watched My Boys. Is it any good? Somebody let me know. [TBS, 8:00 ET]
