The busy schedule of evening games is led by a good pitching match in Washington as the Nationals entertain the Cardinals.

UNDATED (AP) -- Three more Stanley Cup playoff games are being played this evening and in Boston the Bruins, the top seed in the Eastern Conference, start play with a game against Detroit. The Red Wings finished the regular season as the eighth seed in the East. During the regular season the Wings won three of the four games the teams played. The last time these teams met in the playoffs was way back in 1957 when Dwight Eisenhower was president and Elvis Presley was buying Graceland at the age of 22.
The other two games are the second in those series. Montreal took the first game against the Lightning 5-4 in overtime and tonight they play Game 2 in Tampa, while in Anaheim the Ducks look to go up 2-0 against Dallas after winning the opening game 4-3.
