NHL Live with Bill Pidto and E.J. Hradek, on NHL Network, will talk to the surging Gustav Nyquist at 5:30 p.m. ET, as the Detroit Red Wings forward discusses his team's efforts to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs for a 23rd consecutive season.
There are six games on the Monday schedule, including the New York Rangers hosting the Phoenix Coyotes. Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who in recent days has set franchise records with 301 career wins and 50 shutouts, joins Kenny Albert at Madison Square Garden to talk about the milestones and the race to the playoffs. Mike Richter, whose wins record Lundqvist surpassed, will also join us via the MSG Arena Cam at 5:35 p.m.
At TD Garden, the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens will renew their historic rivalry. We'll go out on Arena Cam to talk to Boston Globe beat writer Amalie Benjamin about the Bruins' 12-game winning streak, the longest in the League this season, and whether they can continue it against their Original Six opponent.
In addition, Barry Melrose will join us for his weekly coaches chat.
