Video: Pierre McGuire and Mike Milbury break down the Eastern Conference playoffs

During the first intermission of today’s NBC Game of the Week that saw Detroit deliver what could be a season-ending blow to Chicago with 4-3 win, Pierre McGuire and Mike Milbury broke down the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Pierre and Mike took a look at the series between Washington and New York, Buffalo and Philadelphia, Boston and Montreal, as well as Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay. Washington’s back on top in the East yet again but doing things a bit differently than last year. Also, the Penguins head into the playoffs without their superstars but still looking to the middle for leadership from Jordan Staal.
