The 2014 NHL playoffs live stream and TV coverage for Round 2 continues Friday with two games on the schedule including Game 1 between the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers. The Rangers are coming off of a tough seven game series against the Philadelphia Flyers, while Pittsburgh advanced to Round 2 by knocking off the Columbus Blue Jackets in six games. This East Coast NHL live streaming playoff match-up should be a classic.

According to CBS Sports on May 2, the Penguins and Rangers may not have the same kind of "bad blood" between them that the Flyers and Penguins would have had for this second round match-up, but don't let that kind of talk fool you. As soon as these two teams hit the ice, the all-out hockey war will begin! Pittsburgh and New York split the season series 2-2, with both teams winning a game at home and on the road.

One thing New York will have to improve on if they want to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals is their power play. The Rangers were a dismal 3 for 29 on the power play against Philadelphia in Round 1. What's even worse is they haven't scored once in their last 21 times with the man advantage. Numbers like that may really hurt New York in this series, especially since they are facing the Penguins - the NHL's best team this season on the power play.

Las Vegas odds makers have Pittsburgh as the favorite in tonight's Game 1 match-up at -155 with the over/under number set at 5. Pittsburgh is also the favorite to win this series at -220. If the Rangers can steal Game 1 tonight they have a great shot at pulling off the upset.

Fans can catch all the action tonight on NBC Sports Network nationally and streaming live online through NBC Sports Extra starting at 7 p.m. ET. Who is your pick to win tonight's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals?
