Eastern Conference semifinal action resumes tonight in the NHL playoffs. Tampa Bay is back home after taking the first two games of their series against the Montreal Canadiens, who lost all five meetings to the Lightning in the regular season. The Washington Capitals hold a 2-1 series lead against the New York Rangers and have the opportunity to take a stranglehold with another home win.

NBA

In the NBA playoffs, the Cleveland Cavaliers will look to avoid losing the first two games at home in their Eastern Conference semifinal series with the Chicago Bulls. The Los Angeles Clippers could be without Chris Paul again in Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinal series against the Rockets. The star point guard sat out the series opener in Houston because of a strained left hamstring, but the Clippers scored 34 points off 24 turnovers in a 117-101 win.
