NHL Monday: Thiessen picks Islanders vs Penguins, Maple Leafs vs Canadiens, Lightning vs Panthers, more
Islanders at Penguins, 7 pm EDT; Maple Leafs at Canadiens, 7 pm; Lightning at Panthers, 8 pm; Edmonton Oilers at Winnipeg Jets, 9:45 pm; Minnesota Wild at Vegas Golden Knights, 10:30 pm.
The is flying by, mostly in part to the dominant series wins by some teams.
Already, Colorado (four-game sweep) and Boston (4-1) are into the second round, and three teams could join them tonight (Winnipeg, up 3-0; Tampa Bay, up 3-1; Vegas, up 3-1).
Tampa Bay and Vegas look too strong for Florida and Minnesota, and should wrap up their series tonight.
I still think Edmonton has a win in them. The two other series look to be interesting.
