With one playoff series ending Tuesday night, four more could be ended during Wednesday’s busy slate in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
It starts in the Eastern Conference, where the Lightning could avenge 2019’s bitter postseason end if they can win Game 5 over the Blue Jackets and end their season.
Staying in the East for the second game of the day, the Bruins own a 3-1 series advantage over the Hurricanes and have a chance to end the series in another Game 5 matchup.
The Coyotes will try to extend their season for at least another game later that afternoon, trailing the Avalanche 3-1 in their first round series in the Western Conference.
In the evening, the action returns to the East’s hub in Toronto, where the Flyers own a 3-1 series advantage over the Canadiens and will look to finish off Montreal.
The only series that is guaranteed to continue after Wednesday is the final game of the night, where the Canucks and Blues are tied 2-2.
