NHL Playoff Schedule: Stanley Cup 2017 First Round Dates, Times & TV Schedule

ViewsHeadlines Desk,

Excitement is on zenith as the NHL playoffs begin. As many as sixteen teams are going to fight for their chances in the Stanley Cup beginning Wednesday and hockey fans across the US, Canada and the rest of the world are super excited.

There is no denying that Stanley Cup is a tournament that brings the most talented hockey players in this part of the world to a platform. The best of the best players will try to put their best foot forward as the NHL Playoffs 2017 begin.

Many fans of Pittsburgh Penguins are actually hoping that their team will win the tournament hands down as it remains the best team in the tournament after winning the Stanley Cup last year. Back to back victories are simply rare and the Pittsburgh Penguins will be tested for their toughness and resolve to perform in the days to come.

It must be kept in mind that if Pittsburgh Penguins are able to recreate the magic, they will be the first team after 1997 and 1998 to do it. Detroit Red Wings had won back to back tournaments in the years 1997 and 1998. It must be kept in mind that the tourney begins tonight with five first-round games. The Boston Bruins visit the Ottawa Senators, while the Montreal Canadiens host the New York Rangers at 7 p.m. ET. The defending Stanley Cup champions, the Pittsburgh Penguins also open their postseason on Wednesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets at 7:30 p.m. ET.
