2015 NHL Playoffs: 5/3 Open Thread

Sunday night will be an eventful evening with three playoff games on the schedule.

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday was a bit of a lonely day in the NHL with only one game being played between the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals. However, tonight will make up for yesterday's lack of action with three playoff matchups on the schedule for this evening. Here is the full rundown of tonight's games.

What are your predictions for tonight? There will certainly be plenty of action packed moments throughout the night as the Stanley Cup Playoffs never seem to disappoint. The Lightning and Canadiens will lead things off tonight after Tampa swiped Game 1 with a controversial goal in overtime to take the early series lead. Following that, we'll have an epic matchup between the Blackhawks and Wild. The last time these two teams met in Game 1, we had seven goals exchanged over 39 minutes of action and the Hawks were able to to hang on for the win.

To close out the evening, we'll be greeted with a spirited battle between the Ducks and Flames. Game 1 wasn't very kind to the Flames as they were beaten down by a final score of 6-1. They will look to rebound this evening, and jump right back into the series with a Game 2 victory.

Enjoy the game thread, as well as tonight's games.
