The NHL released the full schedule for the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs late Saturday night, which includes two scheduling scenarios for the Scotia North Division.

Regardless of the winner of Monday night's Game 7, Montreal or Toronto won't have to wait very long before they're back in action. Game 1 against the Winnipeg Jets is set for Wednesday, June 2nd at 7:30pm ET. It's just a matter of where the game will be played. If the Maple Leafs win tomorrow night, the series will start in Toronto, but if the Canadiens win, the second round will begin in Winnipeg.

The Jets will be well rested after sweeping the Edmonton Oilers in the first round. Their last game was May 24th, and by the time they take to the ice for Game 1 of the second round they'll have not played a game in nine days. For some teams, having a long break between games turns out to be a disadvantage, so it will be interesting to see how the Jets start the first game.

As for the other series', Boston/New York began Saturday night with the Bruins winning. The rest of the series is set for May 31st, June 3rd, June 5th, June 7th*, June 9th*, and June 11th*. (*- If necessary).


Carolina/Tampa Bay will start their series this afternoon at 5pm ET. Games 2 thru 7 are June 1st, June 3rd, June 5th, June 8th*, June 10th*, June 12th*.

The highly anticipated Honda West Division Final between the Colorado Avalanche and Vegas Golden Knights will kick off tonight at 8pm ET. The rest of the series will be June 2nd, June 4th, June 6th, June 8th*, June 10th*, June 12th*.
