Lightning opens second round Saturday; time depends on opponent

Game 1 of the Lightning's Eastern Conference semifinals begins Saturday at Amalie Arena regardless of whether the Maple Leafs or Bruins win Wednesday's first-round series Game 7 to advance.

Still in question is the start time.

If the Bruins advance, the game starts at 3 p.m. and will be shown on NBC.  In Canada, the game would be on Sportsnet and TVA Sports.
