(AP)– The Calgary Flames, New York Islanders and Vancouver Canucks all have a chance to take commanding leads in their first-round series Sunday.
Vegas has a chance to become the first team to advance to the conference semifinals, taking a 3-0 into Game 4 against Chicago. The Islanders have a 2-0 series lead against a Washington Capitals team that rallied from such a deficit in the first round against Columbus two years ago on the way to winning the Stanley Cup.
The Flames lead Dallas 2-1, and the Canucks are up 2-0 against defending champion St. Louis. Montreal and Philadelphia will be trying to get a leg up in their series, which is tied 1-1.
The St. Louis Blues face the Canucks in game three on Sunday, August 16 at 9:30 p.m.
