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.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
