NHL Live kicks off the 2013-14 season

The day has arrived. #NHLFaceOff is here and NHL Live will have all three games covered beginning at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network. The Montreal Canadiens host the Toronto Maple Leafs, the banner gets raised in Chicago as the Blackhawks face the Washington Capitals and the Winnipeg Jets make their Western Conference debut against the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place. We'll get reports and player interviews from Chicago and our ice pass will provide live warm-ups in Montreal.

We'll also have our first visit with analyst Eddie Olczyk to preview the Blackhawks' season. As a Chicago native, Olczyk has to be proud of Capitals defenseman Connor Carrick, a 2012 fifth-round draft pick from nearby Orland Park, Ill., who is expected to make his NHL debut Tuesday against his hometown team. It's always great having Eddie O on the show and Tuesday is the perfect night as the Hawks celebrate their championship.

Remember to submit your #AskEJ questions all season long to @NHLNetwork or @EJHradek_NHL, and join the conversation on Twitter as we ask your opinion on some hot topics around the NHL.
