The Toronto Maple Leafs pay one of this season's two trips to Washington on Wednesday, and the NHL Network will be there.
Fans in the United States can catch all the action on the NHL Network when the Leafs try to slow down Alex Ovechkin & Co. at the Verizon Center in a game that faces off at 7 p.m. ET. But fans in Canada won't miss out -- TSN is also airing the game as part of a Wednesday night doubleheader.
In the second game, TSN will be on hand as the Detroit Red Wings begin a swing through Western Canada with a visit to Calgary. That game gets under way at 9:30 p.m. ET.
It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
