TV Sports Schedule, May 17: Nationals Vs. Mets, NBA Playoffs, NHL Playoffs

If you didn't have any plans for tonight before you started reading this sentence, now you do. Here are the best sports on television tonight, and where and when you can watch them. All times Eastern. Follow the links to learn more about each of the teams listed below. Let's get right into it.

↵

Pirates Vs. Nationals, 1, MASN: The Nationals got a win over the Pirates last night thanks to the arm of John Lannan, and the bat of Danny Espinosa. The weather doesn't look so good for this one, so they might not get it in. But at least they have the rest of the afternoon to work with a delay.

Thunder Vs. Mavericks, 9, ESPN: *Puts on analyst hat* This is going to be a matchup of outside shooting tall guys. Kevin Durant and Dirk Nowitzki lead their respective teams, and whoever has the better game gives their squad a good shot at winning.

↵

Lightning Vs. Bruins, 8, Versus: I'm never really sure how this works. Do we root for the Lightning because they knocked out the Capitals and it would make us feel better if they went further? Or do we root against them because we're still mad. Let's just root for a tie.
