Saturday features three NHL playoff series playing their Games 2, with start times spanning from 3 p.m. EDT (Blues-Blackhawks) to 9 p.m. (Avalanche-Wild).
We've done polls for each of the series so far except that latter one, so vote in the poll below (pro tip: Don't pick Wild in a sweep) or explain in comments what you think of the Colorado-Minnesota series, which features a trio of recent Islanders.
It's P.A. Parenteau (returned from another recent knee injury) vs. Matt Moulson (thriving because he's indestructible) and Nino Niederreiter (butthurt as a general rule).
