The Rangers and Anaheim Ducks finish atop the Eastern and Western conferences, respectively. The Blueshirts won this season’s two head-to-head meetings by a combined score of 11-3.

The 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs open on Wednesday. The Rangers and Penguins start their first round series on Thursday night. Here are all of the Eastern and Western Conference first-round matchups and their schedules, listed in Eastern Time, with times subject to change.

Remember that locally, MSG will televise the Rangers’ first-round series with the exception of two exclusive NBC broadcasts – Game 2 on Saturday night and a second game to be named later. After the first round, all Rangers games will be on NBC channels the rest of the way.
