The National Hockey League has announced the starting times and television coverage for all first-round playoff games through Aug. 18. While we were spoiled with five or six games a day during the Qualifying Round, this schedule still assures us four games per day from Tuesday, Aug. 11 through Tuesday, Aug. 18. Beyond that the number of games per day, as well as the start times, will depend on the number of teams still alive in the playoffs.

The seedings and matchups were finalized yesterday with the conclusion of the Qualifying Round and round-robin play:

Eastern Conference

#1 Philadelphia vs. #8 Montreal

#2 Tampa Bay vs. #7 Columbus

#3 Washington vs. #6 N.Y. Islanders

#4 Boston vs. #5 Carolina

 

Western Conference

#1 Vegas vs. #8 Chicago

#2 Colorado vs. #7 Arizona

#3 Dallas vs. #6 Calgary

#4 St. Louis vs. #5 Vancouver
