The arrival of September usually suggests NHL training camp are on the horizon. But it’s 2020, which means the typical continues to be non-existent as the Stanley Cup Playoffs continue Tuesday. A pair of Game 5s are on the schedule, and each could be the final game of the series.

The Eastern Conference is up first, with the Islanders owning a 3-1 series lead over the Flyers. New York won a tight Game 4, inching past the Flyers with a 3-2 victory Sunday. Brock Nelson tallied twice, including the game-winner in the middle of the third period. It’s been a frustrating series for Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux, who has only one point through four games.

While the No. 1 seed in the East is on the brink of elimination, the No. 1 seed in the West is one victory away from the conference final, as the Golden Knights have a 3-1 series lead over the Canucks. Vegas swept two games during the weekend, including a 5-3 win in Game 4 on Sunday. A trio of goals in a 5:37 span of the final period helped Vegas seal that victory.
