Los Angeles Kings 2 - Vegas Golden Knights 3 (VGK leads 3-0)
Boston Bruins (Atlantic Division 2) at Toronto Maple Leafs (Atlantic Division 3)
Series: BOS leads 2-0
Time 7:00pm ET
Television: NBCSN, CBC, TVAS, NESN
Boston has been a one-line team so far and Toronto hasn’t sniffed close to even matching that. I don’t think it’ll be as lopsided tonight, but the Leafs have looked like garbage so far.
Tampa Bay Lightning (Atlantic Division 1) at New Jersey Devils (Wild Card 2)
Series: TBL leads 2-0
Time 7:30pm ET
Television: CNBC, SN, TVAS2, MSG+, FS-F
The Devils have played decently competitive hockey but are just outmatched. We’ll see how a trip home helps them but I might not be able to stomach watching this happen to another of Tampa’s first-round opponents who wears red.
Nashville Predators(Central Division 1) at Colorado Avalanche (Wild Card 2)
Series: NSH leads 2-0
Time 10:00pm ET
Television: NBCSN, SN, TVAS, FS-TN, ALT
I’ve enjoyed watching Colorado fans get their hopes up on two strong starts by their teams before getting swallowed by the better team in a 60-minute game.
Anaheim Ducks (Pacific Division 2) at San Jose Sharks (Pacific Division 3)
Series: SJS leads 2-0
Time 10:30pm ET
Television: CNBC, TVAS2, PRIME, NBCSCA
Somebody else say something about this series. I’ll be in bed.
