There are three games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on the schedule for Wednesday, including an afternoon game to drop the puck on the action.

In the Eastern Conference, the Islanders look to take a 2-0 series lead against the Flyers at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. Semyon Varlamov made 29 saves in Game 1 to become the first New York goalie with consecutive playoff shutouts.

The Lightning and Bruins will play the second half of a back-to-back in Game 3. Ondrej Palat scored 4:40 into overtime to even the series 1-1 after Brad Marchand tied it late for Boston. It’ll be goaltender Jaroslav Halak’s third start in four days for the Bruins.

In the Western Conference, the Stars will try to take a commanding 3-0 series lead against the Avalanche. Dallas has scored five goals in each of the first two games in the series.
