It’s hard to believe that the Philadelphia Flyers haven’t faced the New York Rangers in a playoff series since 1997 – when they made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final before being trounced by the Detroit Red Wings – but it’s true. The two teams begin their first-round series with Game 1 on Thursday; coverage takes place on CNBC and via the live stream link below.
Flyers – Rangers kicks off approximately one hour before the Chicago Blackhawks begin their series against the St. Louis Blues. For that reason, you really might want to have one game on a “second screen” while the other goes on your TV. To organize such an idea, note that Blackhawks – Blues airs on NBCSN and can be streamed via this link.

When it comes to point streaks for U.S.-born NHL players, Patrick Kane now stands alone.
With a power-play goal early in Saturday’s Blackhawks – Kings game, Kane extended his streak to 19 games, breaking a tie with Phil Kessel and Eddie Olczyk (who finished with at least a point in 18 straight).
As of this writing, Kane has 11 goals and 19 assists during this 19-game streak. He also leads the NHL in scoring.
Bobby Hull’s 21-game point streak stands as the Chicago Blackhawks’ overall team record, by the way.
Kane also tied Denis Savard (1985-86) for second-longest streak in Chicago history. Bobby Hull had a 21-game streak.
