Chicago Blackhawks at St. Louis Blues – 8:00 p.m. ET

After acquiring Ryan Miller at the trade deadline, the St. Louis Blues dropped six straight leading into the playoffs, where they’ll face a perennial post-season threat in the Chicago Blackhawks.

It’s a rematch of last year’s series, which the Blues lost in six games. While St. Louis is slumping, Chicago is getting healthier with Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews back from injuries.

Los Angeles Kings at San Jose Sharks – 10:30 p.m. ET

Since joining the Sharks in 2010-11, Antti Niemi has started all 34 playoff games for San Jose, a streak that could be broken by the strong play of Alex Stalock down the stretch.

Coach Todd McLellan remains unclear on whom he’ll start against the Los Angeles Kings in the series opener against L.A.’s Jonathan Quick.

The series should have some bad blood to watch for – Kings captain Dustin Brown sidelined Sharks rookie Tomas Hertl with a knee-on-knee hit in December. Hertl is calling the series “personal.”
