This kid went home sad Sunday night. Think about THAT for a second, you animals.

Preview: New York Rangers at Ottawa Senators, 7 p.m. ET

It's not every day that a players returns from his suspension on the same day as the guy he concussed to get it, but that's what we have here, as both Daniel Alfredsson and Carl Hagelin return for a pivotal Game 6. Back on home ice after taking a 3-2 lead on the road, this might be the Senators' best chance to pull off the upset. It will definitely be a lot tougher at Madison Square Garden, coming off a loss.

Preview: Phoenix Coyotes at Chicago Blackhawks, 9 p.m. ET

I know the start time says 9:00, but you can probably tune in starting at 11:30 and catch all the action. After 5 straight overtime games, predicting an extra frame probably isn't a stretch. "We're going to have to play a tight game and find a way to win one," said Coyotes coach Dave Tippett. The best "way" could be to hold a late-game lead for once. If they can do that, this series won't be going back to Phoenix.

Puck Buddy Comment of the Day: John B saves us some time:

And here we go.... Rabble, rabble, rabble... Cindy Crosby... Rabble, rabble, rabble, classless filthadelphia fans... rabble, rabble, rabble... East coast bias... Rabble, rabble, rabble, homophobic slight.... Rabble, rabble, rabble... Wysh sucks!!! Rabble, rabble, rabble... Did I get all the comments out of the way or did I forget one?

You forgot "I didn't know Chris Chase writes hockey now."

Bold prediction: The Senators complete the upset, but Blackhawks live to fight another day.
