Ladies and gentlemen, we have real playoff hockey.

It’s going to be nothing short of a treat to see Elias Pettersson, Quinn Hughes and co. take on the defending Stanley Cup champs. Vancouver will undoubtedly have their work cut out for them, but it’s going to be great experience for this young club on the up and up.

Nonetheless, the NHL has released the start times for the first four of seven games of the series. All times in PST.

Game one – Wednesday, Aug. 12. 7:30 p.m.

Game two – Friday, Aug. 14, 3:30 p.m.

Game three – Sunday, Aug. 16. 7:30 p.m.

Game four – Monday, Aug. 17th. 7:30 p.m.

Are you ready for some August playoff hockey? We sure are.
