The day starts in the Eastern Conference, where the No. 7 seed Islanders will look to sweep the No. 10 Panthers. The Islanders pulling off a sweep the day after their main rival, the Rangers, were swept would surely be a delight for Islanders fans.
Qualifiers series resume in the evening with the No. 5 vs. No. 12 matchups from each conference. The No. 12 seeds took the first game in both series, but the No. 5 teams responded to even the series. The No. 5 Penguins vs. No. 12 Canadiens are first up, followed by the night owl’s delight of the No. 5 Oilers vs. No. 12 Blackhawks.
