NHL Playoffs and IIHF World Championship 2015 Viewing Guide: How to Watch Wednesday's Games

Back East for hump day.

Montreal Canadiens at Tampa Bay Lightning

Bolts lead 2-0

Time: 7:00pm

Channels: USA, CBC, TVA

What to watch for: Prust is $5K poorer and the Habs lost both games at home to start the series. Tonight could be time to watch the last of Canada's real hope at winning a cup circle the drain.

NY Rangers at Washington Capitals

Caps lead 2-1

Time: 7:30pm

Channels: NBCSN, SN, TVA2

What to watch for: I honestly think Washington is the better team in this series.

AHL Playoffs (Griffins)

There are other games going on here, but we're Griffins fans here. They're what matters.

Rockford Ice Hogs vs. Grand Rapids Griffins

Series tied 0-0

Time: 7:00pm

What to watch for: Rockford is the Blackhawks' affiliate. The Griffins and Icehogs hate each other. This is going to be a brutal series. Should be fun.
