Saturday NHL: Thiessen picks Toronto Maple Leafs at Montreal Canadiens, New York Islanders at Boston Bruins
Islanders, Bruins kick off Stanley Cup Playoff Round 2, with Maple Leafs trying to advance
This is when it starts to get real.
We had some very competitive NHL Stanley Cup Playoff First Round series (and some not so competitive ones), and tonight, the second round starts with a really intriguing contest.
Boston hosts the New York Islanders in Game 1 (in primetime on NBC), in what could be a very long series.
There is still one more first round series to finish, with the winner of the Toronto Montreal series set to face Winnipeg.
I think Toronto finishes it off tonight.
