Bobby Orr special appearance on Tuesday's NHL Live

Eight games on the Tuesday schedule and NHL Live, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, will get you ready for the action. The Anaheim Ducks go for an eight straight win tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs and we'll get a live report from our Arena Cam at Air Canada Centre as well as show the warm-ups of the early games in our Ice Pass.

But the highlight of Tuesday's show will be a very special live appearance from Hall of Famer Bobby Orr, who will be stopping by the NHL Store in New York to sign copies of his new book, "Orr: My Story."

Some of our younger viewers may only be familiar with him from black-and-white photos or grainy video, so here are a couple of facts just to put his amazing career in perspective: He won two scoring titles as a defenseman, and during an era of some outstanding forwards (Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull, Phil Esposito, Stan Mikita, etc.). He also had a career plus-minus of plus-597, including plus-124 in one season. But the book is so much more than just a typical historical autobiography. We'll discuss its topics and his remarkable career on the show today.
