The NHL's Western Conference takes over the spotlight on night two of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The night begins with the Flyers heading up the New Jersey Turnpike to face the Rangers at MSG (7 p.m., CNBC, TSN, all times Eastern). When that one gets to the first intermission, the night's headliner begins: the steel-cage-match series between the Blackhawks and Blues gets underway at Scottrade Center (8 p.m., NBCSN, CBC).
If you need to drag yourself away from the brawl in eastern Missouri, the Wild and Avalanche hit the ice in Denver at 9:30 p.m. on CNBC and TSN with John Forslund and Tripp Tracy on the call, then one of the more intriguing series of the first round gets going in San Jose between the Sharks and Kings (10:30 p.m., NBCSN, CBC).
