Will the Tampa Bay Lightning keep their bid for a three-peat going or will the Toronto Maple Leafs win a playoff series for the first time since 2004?

Will the Carolina Hurricanes advance with a home win or will the Boston Bruins become the first team this series to pick up a road victory?

Does Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid have another big game in him to reach the second round for the second time in his career or does Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Brown get the change to extend his career?

These questions will be decided as three first-round series are going to Game 7 on Saturday.

USA TODAY Sports’ NHL experts Jimmy Hascup, Jace Evans weigh in with their predictions:

The home team has won every game in the Bruins-Hurricanes series. Saturday's game will be in Carolina.

Boston Bruins at Carolina Hurricanes

4:30 p.m. ET Saturday, ET

Hascup: Bruins 3, Hurricanes 2. Bruins goalie Jeremy Swayman will have to prove that Game 6 win in a do-or-die situation was no fluke, but also important is secondary scoring when the Hurricanes can line match against them. Game 6 was a good sign as Erik Haula and Curtis Lazar each scored their first of the playoffs, while Charlie Coyle got his second.
