NHL playoffs schedule 2013: Conference Semifinals begin Tuesday night

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The second round of the NHL playoffs gets underway with a set of games on Tuesday night.

The Conference Semifinals of the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs begins Tuesday night with a set of games.

Entering the second round, there likely isn't a series with more anticipated tension than that of the Ottawa Senators and Pittsburgh Penguins. With Senators superstar defenseman Erik Karlsson having his Achilles tendon lacerated by the skate blade of Penguins forward Matt Cooke, all eyes will be focused on any potential animosity.

In the late game, two Pacific Division foes will meet as the Los Angeles Kings continue their attempt to protect the crown. The San Jose Sharks completed a series sweep of the Vancouver Canucks in Round 1 and will attempt to build on that performance.

Here's a complete look at the night's slate of games:

Ottawa Senators at Pittsburgh Penguins | 7:30 p.m. ET
