Wednesday NHL Playoffs: Thiessen picks Penguins at NY Islanders, Panthers at Lightning, Golden Knights at Wild
Pittsburgh Penguins (-108) at NY Islanders (-113), 6:30 p.m. EDT; Florida Panthers (+125) at Tampa Bay Lightning (-150), 8 p.m. EDT; Vegas Golden Knights (-135) at Minnesota Wild (+115), 9 p.m. EDT.
Another night of NHL hockey, as one home team has its back against the glass, and another two have a chance to clinch their series.
Both the New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning can move on at home into the second round, while the Minnesota Wild must win on its home ice to stay alive.
I think none of those things happens: I like the Penguins and Panthers to win and force Game 7s, while Vegas will spoil the party for the Wild.
