The NHL playoffs resume, and we might see two teams have their seasons end.

To kick things off, the Philadelphia Flyers will try and take a 3-1 stranglehold series lead against the Montreal Canadiens. Flyers’ goaltender Carter Hart made 23 saves for the shutout in Philadelphia’s 1-0 Game 3 win.

In the mid-afternoon matchup, the Calgary Flames and Dallas Stars will battle it out in Game 5 of their series. The Stars evened things up by beating the Flames 5-4 in their last contest. Alex Radulov scored the overtime winner, while Joe Pavelski had a hat-trick for Dallas.

Then, the final two games on the schedule are elimination contests for a pair of teams. The New York Islanders will try and complete a sweep of Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals.

Meanwhile in the night-cap sees the Chicago Blackhawks trying to stay alive by beating the Las Vegas Golden Knights for a second-straight time. Blackhawks’ goalie Corey Crawford was sensational in Game 4, making 48 saves to lead Chicago to the win.
