TAMPA — Round Two of the “Battle of Florida” is set to begin Tuesday at FLA Live Arena in Sunrise.

After Calgary defeated Dallas in overtime to finish out the first round late Sunday, the league released the Round 2 schedules. Florida-Tampa Bay will begin Tuesday at 7 p.m. and could run as late as May 29 if the best-of-seven series goes the distance.

The teams will have two days off between Games 2 and 3 — there is a Kane Brown concert at Amalie Arena on Saturday — and play will resume Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. in Tampa.

Games will air on TNT for those in either market.
