Hockey fans in the United States will get the chance to see one of the NHL's top guns face one of its hottest teams on Thursday night.
Steven Stamkos, the League leader with 15 goals, will lead the Tampa Bay Lightning into Philadelphia for a meeting with the red-hot Flyers in a game that can be seen on the NHL Network in the United States, beginning at 7 p.m. ET. Before Tuesday night's 3-0 loss at Montreal, the Flyers had won six in a row, and their 12-5-2 record has them comfortably in first place in the Atlantic Division.
The Canadiens, who are off to a 12-5-1 start that has them atop the Northeast Division, will be on RDS Thursday night when they host Nashville. The Predators are coming off a disappointing 5-4 loss at Toronto on Tuesday.
