Three Game 4 matchups tonight.

PIT vs CBJ @ 7:00
ANA vs DAL @ 8:00
STL vs CHI @ 9:30

Any chance these series will get tied up? Predictions?

Ehh its more than likely that Chicago ties up the series. Crawford is playing solid and they're pretty tough to beat at home. The Blues also love to lose to i'm going with Chicago 3-1 tonight

Massey is actually predicting some close ones tonight, if anyone is interested. The favorites and estimated probabilities are:

 - Chicago (63%) predicted 3-2 score

I think the predicted score is the median of several simulations, but I don't know everything about the method used.
