All times are Pacific.
Friday April 15th
Chicago Blackhawks at St Louis Blues – 5pm NBCSN: If this series turns out to be like the one they played a few years ago then we are in for a treat. So far it has with the Blues winning game 1 in OT.
Detroit Tigers at Houston Astros – 5pm MLB.TV: Two teams who fully expect to be in the post season. The Astros have taken their lumps here at the start of the season but they send last years AL Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel to the hill.
SF Giants at LA Dodgers – 7pm MLBN: The pitching match-up alone is why you should watch this one as Madison Bumgarner goes against Clayton Kershaw.
Nashville Predators at Anaheim Ducks – 7:30pm NBCSN: The last playoff series to get started and it may be the best of the bunch.
Saturday April 16th
Chelsea vs Manchester City – 9:30am NBC: In past seasons this would be a game that would decide the Premier League title. Not this year but it’s still a fun game to watch.
NY Rangers at Pittsburgh Penguins – Noon NBC: Pens are up 1-0 and the Rangers may be without goalie Henrik Lundqvist.
Houston Rockets at Golden State Warriors – 12:30pm ABC: Well those 73 wins the Warriors had during the regular season officially mean nothing.Now the title defense truly begins and it starts with a very dangerous Rockets team.
Philadelphia Flyers at Washington Capitals – 4pm CNBC: Game 2 and the Flyers have to find a way to kick it into gear.
San Jose Sharks at LA Kings – 7:30pm NBCSN: Not only is it game 2 but it is still NorCal vs SoCal.
Sunday April 17th
St Louis Blues at Chicago Blackhawks – Noon NBC: Game 3.
Detroit Pistons at Cleveland Cavaliers – Noon ABC: It’s time for King James to start another quest to bring a title to Northern Ohio. New coach may make a difference and a healthy Kyrie Irving will make a big difference.
Orlando City vs New England Revolution – 12:30pm ESPN: These two are separated by a single point and City is making the Citrus Bowl a very tough place for their opponents.
FC Dallas vs Sporting KC – 4pm FS1: FC Dallas is riding high after drubbing the defending MLS Cup champs at mid week. Meanwhile SKC has to rebound from a surprising loss at home to Colorado. Very interesting indeed.
SF Giants at LA Dodgers – 5pm ESPN: Sunday Night Baseball at Chavez Ravine. Two franchises that have a very genuine hatred of each other.
Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs – 5pm TNT: The Spurs might be the only team able to beat the Warriors but they have to take care of business first by beating a scrappy Grizzlies team.
Nashville Predators at Anaheim Ducks – 7:30pm NBCSN: The late game to end your weekend the right way.
Portland Trail Blazers at LA Clippers – 7:30pm TNT: Rip City heads to Lob City and this should be a very close series.
