Hockey fans, the Eastern Conference Finals and the Western Conference Finals are set to be decided, and it all starts tonight.

At 8 pm EDT, the Hurricanes are on the ice in Boston, Massachusetts, for a shot at their second Eastern Conference Finals in four years.

The Bruins, on the other hand, looking to counter the upset, and win their third straight game to close out the long and fatiguing series.

Who's it going to be? Will the Cardiac Canes recover from losing two in a row and finish out the upset in the series? Or, will it be the top-seeded team in the Eastern Conference who pulls out a piece of history, coming back from a 3-1 deficit?

Take your picks, and Boston fans, be on the look out. Cam Ward is not one who gives up three games in a row; EVER!

I'm not saying he has never given up three in a row, but there is not a huge chance he will, as this is playoff time.

He should be on the top of his game tonight.
