Three teams have advanced out of the first round of the 2021 NHL Playoffs, and Wednesday we’ll likely see a notable increase in teams clinching their respective series. Boston, Winnipeg, and Colorado have all secured a spot in the second round, and starting Wednesday, every single remaining first round playoff game will have a clinching scenario for one of the teams.

We get started with a three-game schedule on Wednesday, May 26. The evening opens at 6:30 p.m. ET with the New York Islanders hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins on NBC Sports Network. The Islanders lead the series 3-2. The Islanders are listed at -109 while the Penguins are -106 at DraftKings Sportsbook. You can live stream NBC Sports Network at NBCSports.com/live with a cable log-in.

That’s followed by puck dropping at 8 p.m. when the Tampa Bay Lightning host the Florida Panthers on CNBC. Tampa Bay leads the series 3-2. The Lightning are -148 favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook while the Panthers are +125 underdogs. You can live stream CNBC at CNBC.com/live-tv with a cable log-in.

The evening wraps with the puck dropping at 9 p.m. when the Minnesota Wild host the Vegas Golden Knights on NBCSN. Vegas leads the series 3-2. The Golden Knights are -136 favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook while the Wild are +118 underdogs. You can live stream NBC Sports Network at NBCSports.com/live with a cable log-in.
