The very tight Eastern Conference final continues tonight in Pittsburgh.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

This series is about as tight as they come. After a huge game four win to tie the series up on home ice, the Tampa Bay Lightning are in Pittsburgh to face the Penguins tonight, and whoever wins will put the opposition on the brink of elimination.

The Penguins have been riding the hot hand of Matt Murray for some time, but Marc-Andre Fleury is set to return tonight and backstop his team.
