2011 NHL Playoffs Schedule For April 18: Flyers Vs. Sabres, Bruins Vs. Canadiens, Penguins Vs. Lightning, Red Wings Vs. Coyotes

Here's the NHL Playoffs schedule for Monday, April 18. All times Eastern. The Buffalo Sabres will host the Philadelphia Flyers at 7:00, with the series tied 1-1. The Flyers are dealing with goalie issues, and it's unclear whether Brian Boucher or Sergei Bobrovsky will start for Philadelphia.

The Montreal Canadiens will play the Boston Bruins in Montreal at 7:30 PM; the Canadiens lead the series 2-0 despite playing both games in Boston. Now that the Canadiens are back at home, it'll be an uphill battle for the Bruins.

Of course, the 7:30 game to which SB Nation Pittsburgh readers will be tuned in is Game Three of the series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning, which will be in Tampa Bay. The series is tied 1-1, with the Penguins pretty clearly outplaying the Lightning in the first game and the opposite in the second.

In the final game of the night, the Phoenix Coyotes will host the Detroit Red Wings at 10:30. Detroit leads the series 2-0.
