The second round of the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs begins in earnest on Thursday, with one very familiar matchup and one being quite fresh.
First off, we have Game 1 of the Washington Capitals – New York Rangers series, which is taking place at Madison Square Garden. While these teams facing off almost feels like a rite of spring (or summer?), it could have a different feel with two new bench bosses. You can watch on NBCSN and stream via NBC Sports Live Extra.
Next, we have just the second-ever playoff meeting between the Anaheim Ducks and the Calgary Flames (Anaheim prevailed in seven games back in 2005-06). Game 1 is in Anaheim. NBCSN also covers this one, while you can watch online via the link below.
