The NHL announced on Friday that it will resume play in the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs on Saturday with a tripleheader of second round games. The league postponed all games on Thursday and Friday following a growing protest movement in the aftermath of the police shooting Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The playoffs will resume Saturday with the following tripleheader (all times eastern):

12 p.m.: Boston Bruins vs. Tampa Bay Lightning, Game 4, NBC
7 p.m.: New York Islanders vs. Philadelphia Flyers, Game 3, NBCSN
9:45 p.m.: Vancouver Canucks vs. Vegas Golden Knights, Game 3, NBCSN

The Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars will resume play on Sunday, with the puck dropping on Game 4 at 6 p.m. on NBCSN. That game will be followed by Flyers-Islanders at 8 p.m. on NBC and then Golden Knights-Canucks at 10:30 p.m. on NBCSN.
