© Provided by Sporting News

Three Stanley Cup playoff series will be wrapped up on Saturday.

The Bruins, Lightning and Oilers each won their Game 6 matchups on Thursday against the Hurricanes, Maple Leafs and Kings, respectively, to force decisive Game 7 matchups.

All three series have been tight throughout the playoffs, with the Hurricanes being the only team of the six that are going to play on Saturday to have at one point held a two-game advantage in the playoff series.

For three teams, the pursuit of Lord Stanley’s Cup will come to an end. For three others, hope will remain alive, at least for another round.

Here’s all the information you need to watch the three Game 7s on Saturday, including start time and TV channels in the United States and Canada.

What NHL games are on today?

Here’s a look at Saturday’s schedule for the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Saturday, May 13

Game Time (ET) Channel
Bruins at Hurricanes 4:30 p.m. ESPN (U.S.), SN360 (Canada), fuboTV
Lightning at Maple Leafs 7 p.m. TNT (U.S.), Sportsnet (Canada), CBC (Canada), TVA Sports (Canada)
Kings at Oilers 10 p.m. ESPN (U.S.), Sportsnet (Canada), CBC (Canada), fuboTV

What channels are the NHL games on Saturday?

Here’s how to watch the three games on Saturday.

Bruins at Hurricanes

  • Puck drop: 4:30 p.m. ET
  • TV (U.S.): ESPN
  • TV (Canada): SN360, TVA Sports
  • Live stream (U.S.): ESPN+, fuboTV
  • Live stream (Canada): SN Now, SN NOW+

When the first two games of this series were over, it appeared the sharp defense and potent offense of the Hurricanes was going to be too much for the Bruins to overcome. Carolina won the first two games by a combined 10-3 and looked to be in cruise control with the series heading to Boston. But the Bruins bounced back over the next two contests, outscoring the Hurricanes 9-4 to tie the series.

Brad Marchand has been a force for Boston in this series. He scored the first goal on Thursday in the Bruins’ eventual 5-2 win in Game 6, and leads all players in the series with four goals and is tied for the most assists with seven.

Hurricanes goalie Antti Raanta has not been the same since he was injured in Game 2. Raanta stopped 97.6 percent of the shots he faced in the first two games, but since then, he has a 90.4 save percentage.

Lighting at Maple Leafs

  • Puck drop: 7 p.m. ET
  • TV (U.S.): TNT
  • TV (Canada): Sportsnet, CBC, TVA Sports
  • Live stream (U.S.): Watch TNT
  • Live stream (Canada): SN Now, SN NOW+

If the trend of this series has been any indication, the Maple Leafs are on pace to snap their playoff series winless streak. Toronto has not won a series since 2004, but so far, neither the Lightning nor the Maple Leafs have won two straight games in this series. Given the Lightning won in overtime in Game 6, the trend would indicate Toronto is up next.

As would be expected between two top-10 scoring offenses in the league, this has been a high-scoring series. No team has won by scoring fewer than four goals, and winners are averaging five goals per game.

Hart Memorial Trophy finalist Auston Matthews has thus far led the scoring, having notched four goals, while Nikita Kucherov’s six assists are the most of any player in the series.

Kings at Oilers

  • Puck drop: 10 p.m. ET
  • TV (U.S.): ESPN
  • TV (Canada): Sportsnet, CBC, TVA Sports
  • Live stream (U.S.): ESPN+, fuboTV
  • Live stream (Canada): SN Now, SN NOW+

The Oilers’ offensive prowess has been on full display in the series against the Kings. In Games 2 and 3, when the Oilers outscored Los Angeles 14-2, Evander Kane had back-to-back two-goal games and goals came in rapid succession.

But the team’s defense and goalkeeping of Mike Smith have at times been tested. In two of the losses the Oilers have had against the Kings, the offense has scored at least three goals, but it let in at least four to a team that scored the 20th most goals during the regular season.

Predictably, Connor McDavid has had a standout series with 12 points (three goals, nine assists), while Kane has a series-leading seven goals, followed closely by Leon Draisaitl and his five goals.
