NHL Playoffs Schedule 2011, Second Round: Tampa Bay Lightning Vs. Washington Capitals

With the Tampa Bay Lightning's victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins Wednesday night, the Lightning advance on to the second round of the NHL playoffs. The Lightning weren't considered likely to reach the second round, as they were seeded lower than Pittsburgh and started off the series in a 3-1 hole, but they came back to win despite the long odds.

This second round could be challenging for the Bolts, as the Washington Capitals came in first place in the entire Eastern Conference this year. The Capitals also won the season-long match-up between the two clubs, winning four of the six games and outscoring the Lightning by eight goals. And as the higher seeded club, they will also have home-ice advantage.

The full schedule for their second round match-up is below: 

Tampa Bay vs. Washington

Game 1: Friday, April 29, 7:00 p.m. ET (VERSUS/TSN)

Game 2: Sunday, May 1, 7:00 p.m. ET (VERSUS/CBC)

Game 3: Tuesday, May 3, TBD (VERSUS/TSN)

Game 4: Wednesday, May 4, 7:00 p.m. ET (TSN)
