2013 Second Round Stanley Cup Playoff Schedule

Tonight officially kicked off the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Though the remaining teams were anticipated by many to be the final four in each conference, the victories didn’t come easy, and three series were pushed to a game seven. The New York Rangers shut out the widely-favored Washington Capitals in game seven, while the Boston Bruins and the Detroit Red Wings launched into the second round by a single goal in their respective game sevens.

The teams are whittling down, and it’s time for the rubber to really hit the Stanley Cup road. As promised, we’re working hard to keep you updated on what’s happening around the league, and here’s the full schedule for the second round.
