Canucks-Predators opens second round Thursday
The second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs gets under way on Thursday night with the top-seeded Vancouver Canucks hosting the Nashville Predators in Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinal at 9 p.m. ET (Versus, CBC, RDS).

It will mark a quick turnaround for the Canucks, who survived the Blackhawks coming back from a 3-0 series deficit to force Game 7 before finally claiming a 2-1 win Tuesday night on an Alexandre Burrows goal. The Predators have been off since Sunday, when they completed the first playoff series win in franchise history by eliminating the Ducks in six games.

Keep an eye on NHL.com as the rest of the second-round playoff schedule will be released later Wednesday night following the conclusion of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.
