Today is the final day of the NHL regular season as baseball slowly ignites their 162-game regular season schedule. The third-round of the Masters kicks off, but we assume a 52-year old Fred Couples isn't the draw of a struggling Tiger Woods. But where can you find all of this?

NHL Hockey: Chicago Blackhawks at Detroit Red Wings (1 PM, NBC)
In case you didn't realize it, today is the final day of the NHL regular season. Chicago currently has the No. 6 seed but with a win they could overtake the Red Wings for the No. 5 slot.

MLB Baseball: St. Louis Cardinals at Milwaukee Brewers (3:30 PM, FOX)
Fox begins their Game of the Week coverage this week -- usually a handful of games broadcast regionally -- with Cincinnati getting the Cardinals and Brewers, two teams expected to battle the Reds for the National League Central this year.

The Masters: Third-Round (3:30 PM, CBS)
The story through the first two rounds at Augusta is 52-year old Fred Couples heading into the third-round tied for the lead with Jason Dufner at five-under. Tiger Woods is tied at 40th, eight shots from the lead.

NHL Hockey: Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins (4 PM, NBC Sports)
The last time these two teams met, they combined for 68 penalty minutes on April 1. The Penguins have the No. 4 seed for the postseason while the Flyers are hot their heels at No. 5.

NHL Hockey: Washington Capitals at New York Rangers (6:30 PM, NBC Sports)
Washington has secured the No. 8 seed in the East already but have lost all three games that they've played against the Rangers, who have already secured the top seed in the conference.

MLB Baseball: Miami Marlins at Cincinnati Reds (7:00 PM, Fox Sports Ohio)
The game of the day for us Cincinnatians. After shutting out the Marlins 4-0 during Opening Day, the two teams will meet for Opening Night. Mat Latos is expected to take the hill in his Reds debut.

NBA Basketball: Orlando Magic at Philadelphia 76ers (8:00 PM, ESPN)
If you haven't had enough of the Stan Van Gundy and Dwight Howard clusterf**k in Orlando, then tonight is as good as any. And the 76ers are probably grateful, considering that they've lost six of the past 10 after starting the season so strong.

NBA Basketball: Denver Nuggets at Golden State Warriors (10:30 PM, ESPN)
Denver is hanging on by a thread for a playoff spot and the Golden State Warriors are out of the postseason picture. ESPN probably assumed you had plans anyway.

NHL Hockey: Los Angeles Kings at San Jose Sharks (10:30 PM, NBCS Sports)
The winner between the Kings and Sharks, the No. 7 and No. 8 seed respectively, will determine the final two spots with both teams tied at 94 points.
