The second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs continues Saturday with two games.

The Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning start their second round series. The Lightning haven’t played since eliminating the New Jersey Devils a week ago, while the Bruins are coming off their Game 7 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday.

Tampa Bay won the Atlantic Division title and have the top seed in the Eastern Conference after edging the Bruins by one point in the standings. Boston, however, was 3-1 against the Lightning in the regular season.

The Vegas Golden Knights look to remain unbeaten in the playoffs when they host Game 2 against the San Jose Sharks. The Golden Knights made easy work of the Sharks in Game 1 with a 7-0 victory. San Jose will try to even the series without forward Evander Kane, who was suspended by the NHL for Game 2 for cross-checking Pierre-Edouard Bellemare.
