All times Pacific.
Friday April 1st
New England Revolution vs NY Red Bulls – 4pm UniMas: These two were the cream of the crop last year in the east and should be again this year.
Minnesota Wild at Detroit Red Wings – 4:30pm NHLN: The Wild are holding on to the last playoff spot in the west while the Red Wings are two points out of the last spot in the east. So yes, there is a lot on the line.
Cleveland Cavaliers at Atlanta Hawks – 5pm ESPN: Two of the top teams in the east look to fine tune things before the playoffs.
Washington Capitals at Colorado Avalanche – 6pm NHL.TV: The Avs are playoff hopes are fading fast but whatever glimmer of hope they do have Ovi and the crew look to crush it.
Boston Celtics at Golden State Warriors – 7:30 ESPN: Warriors are zeroing in on the best season in NBA history. To get to 73 wins, they have to beat a solid Celtics team.
Saturday April 2nd
Liverpool vs Tottenham – 9:30am NBC: Liverpool looks to give the high flying Spurs a reality check with only a few games left in the season.
Pittsburgh Penguins at NY Islanders – 10am NHL.TV: The Isles are in hot pursuit of the Pens playoff spot. Seeding could be all the difference when it comes to the chase for Lord Stanley.
Dallas Stars at LA Kings – 1pm NHL.TV: Playoff preview. Watch it.
Villanova vs Oklahoma – 3pm TBS: Game one of two to decide who gets to play for all the marbles come Monday. Keep and eye on Buddy Hield from OU. He is probably the best player in the country.
Colorado Rapids vs Toronto FC: 5pm MLS LIVE: The Rapids are worth watching….at least thus far. TFC brings a lot of talent and fire power so the Rapids defense will be tested often.
Detroit Pistons at Chicago Bulls – 5pm NBA.TV: Bulls have got to stop the bleeding if they want to be in the playoffs. It starts with beating the Pistons at home.
Sporting KC vs Real Salt Lake – 5:30pm MLS LIVE: These are played for MLS Cup just two short years ago in KC. They are very different now but it’s still a good one.
Syracuse vs North Carolina – 5:45pm TBS: This is may be an ACC matchup (UNC won the two meetings during the regular season) and UNC has the Cuse out gunned. But Syracuse has nothing to lose and their coach has been here before.
Sunday April 3rd
St Louis Cardinals at Pittsburgh Pirates – 10am ESPN: Baseball is back! Two playoff teams from a year ago.
Oklahoma City Thunder at Houston Rockets – 12:30pm ABC: OKC has a playoff spot sown up but the Rockets are desperately trying to get in. This is a tall order for Harden and Co.
Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays – 1pm ESPN2: Division rivals in arguably the toughest division in baseball. Bat flip anyone?
Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins – 2pm NHL.TV: Flyers are desperately trying to hold on to that last playoff spot in the east.
Orlando City vs Portland Timbers – 5pm FS1: Orlando City is an outpost and no where near Portland, Oregon. Will the travel, atmosphere and weather effect the MLS Cup Champs?
Portland TrailBlazers at Golden State Warriors – 5pm NBA,TV: Both are bound for the playoffs but the thing to keep your eye on here is Damian Lillard. He can provide the Warriors plenty of headaches.
NY Mets at KC Royals – 5:30pm ESPN: Sunday night baseball is a rematch of last years World series.
