Tonight is one of those draw-a-line-in-the-sand type nights. Barring bodily injury or impossible work (without DVR) scenarios, there is no excuse not to watch Boston vs. San Jose tonight. Well, unless of course you're one of 100 million people who don't have versus. But that's another argument for another day.
Regardless of your favorite team, please tune in tonight. This is the only way to show NBC that choosing the best games with the best teams is the best way to great ratings, not simply throwing up your hands and saying "Sidney Crosby and big markets."
