The Stanley Cup Playoffs continue as we get ready for two Game 1s in the Eastern Conference and two Game 2s in the Western Conference on Thursday. Cisco NHL Live with Steve Mears and E.J. Hradek, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, will get you ready for all four matchups.
Washington Capitals chairman and majority owner Ted Leonsis joins us as the Capitals prepare to face the New York Rangers in Game 1. We'll also fire up our Cisco NHL Arena Cam in Montreal with former player and CBC analyst Garry Galley to get a live preview as the Montreal Canadiens open up their series with the Ottawa Senators.
In the West, Anaheim Ducks forward Nick Bonino will talk to us via the Cisco NHL Arena Cam in Anaheim as the Ducks look for a 2-0 series lead over the Detroit Red Wings. We'll also talk to Hall-of-Famer Brett Hull in St. Louis as the St. Louis Blues look to win back-to-back games against the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings.
