After a two-day halt in play as players across the league joined other professional athletes in a united protest of the ongoing racial inequality issues that plagued this country, the league is set to resume its Stanley Cup playoffs on Saturday.

Despite a long way to go to solve these issues, particularly in the hockey community, it was an important step to take for the players and the hope is actions will follow these statements. To read more about the actions and steps needed to help fix these issues, I encourage you to visit the Hockey Diversity Alliance website and read their pledge and mission.
Here is what is on tap in the NHL on Saturday:
Boston Bruins vs Tampa Bay Lightning (12 pm EST, Game 4)
Lightning lead series 2-1 – The Bruins will look to rebound after an embarrassing 7-1 loss to the Bolts in Game 3 which saw Jaroslav Halak get chased from the game in the second period. By all accounts, Halak will be back in net for Game 4 and the Bruins will try to make this a Best-of-3.

New York Islanders vs. Philadelphia Flyers (7 pm EST, Game 4)
Series tied 1-1 – The Flyers nearly squandered a 3-0 lead in Game 2 which would have put them in a 0-2 series hole to the Islanders but Kevin Hayes saved their bacon with the overtime winner. Which team will take the next edge as the series “shifts to New York”.
Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks (9:45 pm EST, Game 3)
Series tied 1-1 – The Canucks looked overmatched in a lopsided loss to the Golden Knights in Game 1, however, the return of Tyler Toffoli (three points) and Jacob Markstrom’s 38 saves on 40 shots, sparked the Canucks in Game 2 as they were able to tie the series. Who will grab the edge in Game 3?
