Following a brief two-day pause, the Stanley Cup Playoffs return Saturday with three games, including a pair of Game 3s and one Game 4.
And it’s the Game 4 that begins the action late Saturday morning, with the Lightning owning a 2-1 series lead over the Bruins. In Game 3 on Wednesday, Tampa Bay’s offense exploded in a 7-1 victory, led by four points from Nikita Kucherov and two goals from Alex Killorn.
The action stays in the Eastern Conference for the first game of the evening, when the Flyers and Islanders meet for Game 3. New York blanked Philadelphia 4-0 in Game 1, but the Flyers rebounded with two goals from Kevin Hayes and an OT winner from Philippe Myers for a 4-3 win in Game 2.
In the nightcap, the Western Conference takes the ice in Game 3 between the Golden Knights and Canucks. Vegas dominated Game 1, winning 5-0, but Vancouver’s youngsters took over in Game 2. Tyler Toffoli scored three points while playing his first game in almost a month and Bo Horvat tallied twice to even the series at one game apiece.
