A quick look at what games will be on what channels in tonight’s Stanley Cup playoff action…

Rangers at Penguins, 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN

After earning a split at New York’s MSG on Saturday night, the Pittsburgh Penguins look to take their first series lead in Game 3 tonight. Penguins captain Sidney Crosby recorded his first multi-goal playoff game since Game 1 of the 2013 playoffs – he had just one goal in 13 postseason contests last year. The Rangers, who owned the league’s best road record during the regular season, will look to retake the lead in the series at Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center. New York was 28-11-2 away from the garden during the season and won 15 of its last 18 road contests. Gord Miller and Pierre McGuire will have the call.

Blues at Wild, 8 p.m. ET on CNBC

The St. Louis Blues hope to build on Vladimir Tarasenko’s first career playoff hat trick as their series with the Wild shifts to Minnesota knotted at one. Tarasenko’s three-goal performance led the way for the Blues in Saturday’s 4-1 victory. The Wild went 12-5-0 on home ice after acquiring goaltender Devan Dubnyk on Jan. 14, but dropped three straight at Xcel Energy Center to close out the regular season.

Ducks at Jets, 9 p.m. ET on NBCSN

For the first time since 1996 the city of Winnipeg will host an NHL playoff game tonight as the Jets look for the franchise’s first postseason victory. Third period penalties have hurt the Jets in the first two games of the series. Ryan Getzlaf scored the insurance marker on a power play in Game 1 giving the Ducks a 4-2 win and Patrick Maroon scored the game-tying goal with Andrew Ladd in the box in Game 2.
