What to Watch: Monday

by Robbie Gillies

This is the calm before the storm. Playoff hockey starts on Wednesday and NBA playoffs start Saturday. This is the short time to take a breath, see the light of day, clear your head of college basketball, and get ready for over a month of playoff television.

7pm ET - ESPN - Padres @ Mets - The Mets open their new home, Citi Field. So far, it's getting rave reviews.

Non-sports pick - 8pm - National Geographic - On Board Marine One - Like Air Force One, but in helicopter form.
