NHL Playoffs Viewing Guide: How to Watch Friday's Games

Sorry for missing yesterday. I...uhh... woke up late.

Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens

Series tied 0-0

Time: 7:00pm

Channels: CBC, TVA, NBCSN

What to watch for: Watch for the angry vein in my forehead to throb every time Tyler Johnson touches the puck and his arms don't explode off his torso like they should. Watch for PK Subban to run all over the Lightning offensive zone. Watch for Ben Bishop to give up a soft goal. Now watch none of that shit happen because I jinxed it.

Minnesota Wild at Chicago Blackhawks

Series tied 0-0

Time: 9:30pm

Channels: NBCSN, SN, TVA2

What to watch for: This would have been a bye series for Chicago in the last few years. With Dubnyk still playing well and the Wild having good team depth, this one will be a slugfest. I bet game one is dirty as hell.

IIHF World Championship 2015

(Time translation: These games are six hours ahead of East Coast time)

USA vs. Finland will be on NBCSN at 10:00am today if you want to tune in.
