We have our first two potential elimination games of the 2015 playoffs scheduled for tonight. Ottawa and Winnipeg must beat Montreal and Anaheim respectively in order to avoid being swept. The situation for the Penguins and Blues isn’t quite as dire in their respective series against the Rangers and Wild, but this is an important night for both of them. If Pittsburgh and St. Louis lose, then both teams will be down 3-1 against dangerous opponents led by strong goaltenders.
All four games can be streamed online via the NBC Sports Live Extra, starting with tonight’s contest between the Penguins and Rangers. The game will air on NBCSN and is scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m. ET, but you can tune in at 6:00 p.m. ET for pregame coverage:
Game 4 of Montreal vs. Ottawa will air on USA Network and is also scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m. ET:
Following the Penguins-Rangers game, you can stick with NBCSN for Game 4 of the Wild-Blues series. The livestream link is different from the game between Pittsburgh and New York though, so if you plan to watch the game online you’ll want to keep that in mind. Minnesota’s contest against St. Louis is scheduled to start at 9:30 p.m. ET:
USA Network also has a doubleheader as after the game between Montreal and Ottawa, it will air tonight’s contest between Winnipeg and Anaheim. As is the case with the NBCSN doubleheader, the URL for the livestream changes per game even if the channel airing it stays the same. Here is the link to the Ducks-Jets game, which begins at 9:30 p.m. ET:
