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

The Wings are back!

Tampa Bay Lightning (2A) at Detroit Red Wings (3A)

Series tied 1-1

Time: 7:00pm

Channels: NBCSN, SN, TVA, FS-F, FS-D

What to watch for: Mike Babcock went back to (mostly) the same lineup that earned them a lot of wins early in the season and then a few more late. If this is going to be the start of his magnum opus, then he'll do it his way.

Washington Capitals (2M) at NY Islanders (3M)

Islanders lead series 2-1

Time: 7:30pm

Channels: USA, SN360, TVA2, CSN-DC, MSG+

What to watch for: This one's got real promise to go seven. Tavares and Ovechkin are some of the most-fun players to watch in the NHL.

Nashville Predators (2C) at Chicago Blackhawks (3C)

Blackhawks lead series 2-1

Time: 9:30pm

Channels: NBCSN, SN, TVA3, FS-TN, CSN-CH

What to watch for: Amazingly, Chicago has better forwards. Who knew?

Vancouver Canucks (2P) at Calgary Flames (3P)

Flames lead series 2-1

Time: 10:00pm

Channels: CBC, USA, TVA

What to watch for: Things could continue to get really ugly as Alex Burrows and Kevin Bieksa continue to be dirtbags who probably shouldn't be playing in this game.
