Cisco NHL Live talks Wednesday Night Rivalries

It is Rivalry Night in the NHL and on Cisco NHL Live (5 p.m. ET, NHLN) and Steve Mears and E.J. Hradek have both Wednesday Night Rivalry games covered.

 

We'll go live to the Wells Fargo Center with NBC Sports Analyst Pierre McGuire to discuss the fierce battle between the Washington Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers, and we'll get an update on the late game between the Los Angeles Kings and Detroit Red Wings from Kings radio analyst, Daryl Evans.

Our Subway Fresh Face of the week is Mississauga Steelheads forward Dylan Smoskowitz, who will join the show to talk about his prospects of being drafted in June.

NHL Network Insider Darren Dreger will also be with us giving the latest information on the proposed realignment, as well as trade rumors involving the Duck.

Don't forget to submit your #AskEJ through Twitter via @NHLNetwork or @EJHradek_NHL, keep an eye on this senior reporter's dance moves in his EJ5, his top 5 under-the-radar forwards, and stick around for the shootout as E.J. picks all four games being played Wednesday.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
