NHL Playoffs and IIHF World Championship 2015 Viewing Guide: How to Watch Sunday's Games
Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens
Bolts lead 1-0
Channels: NBCSN, CBC, TVA
What to watch for: Tampa took game one in double overtime and stole home ice advantage from the Canadiens, who played a good game, but weren't able to solve Ben Bishop outside of the one goal he gifted them. Looks like my prediction that Tampa would give Montreal trouble was a good one.
Minnesota Wild at Chicago Blackhawks
Hawks lead 1-0
Channels: NBCSN, CBC, TVA2, SN360
What to watch for: The Hawks went up 3-0 on the Wild and then let Minny catch them before pulling off a close 4-3 win. Chicago may have to take this series more seriously.
Calgary Flames at Anaheim Ducks
Ducks lead 1-0
Channels: CNBC, TVA, SN
What to watch for: Anaheim stomped the Flames in game 1. If Calgary doesn't respond here, it's going to be a short series.
Grand Rapid Griffins vs. Toronto Marlies - Game 5 (Best of 5 Series)
Location: Van Andel Arena - Grand Rapids, MI
What to watch for: The Griffins fell down 2-0 in this series before winning the last two to force the deciding game 5. Pulkkinen is tearing it up down there and Tomas Nosek is having himself a series. Do or die time in this one. Nothing available on television, but AHL Live has options

Jurco and Tatar are slated to join team Slovakia in this tournament, but the timetable for that to actually happen hasn't been set yet. As of this writing, they are not listed on the team roster per the IIHF website.
Outside of that, Team USA has today off before taking on Russia tomorrow. Dylan Larkin is having himself a decent time there so far in a defensive center role.
