NHL Western Conference Matchups Set for Round 2

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The National Hockey League is ready to start the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The full schedule and matchups will be officially announced later tonight (or early tomorrow, depending) when the two game sevens scheduled tonight are completed.

For the Western Conference, it’s only a waiting game, as all four series have completed.

The San Jose Sharks will face off against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings.  Game One will be played on Tuesday at 10PM.

Game one for the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings is scheduled for Wednesday May 15th.

The Pittsburgh Penguins know they will be playing the Ottawa Senators in round two of the Eastern Conference playoffs,  the winners of the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals game seven will face off against the winners of the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs game seven.  Both games are scheduled for tonight.

That series will most likely kick off on Wednesday with the Detroit/Chicago series, or on Thursday.

Hopefully you have two televisions that you can watch simultaneously, or be a master of picture in picture television watching – the Boston/Toronto game starts at seven and is being broadcast on CBC, RDS, and CNBC.

The Rangers and Capitals start at 8 on NBCSN, TSN, and RDS2.
