A rare matchup between two and-up-coming teams will be televised for a national audience on Monday night.

The Dallas Stars, who have won three straight and find themselves in a first-place tie in the Pacific Division at 13-8-1, will travel to the East Coast to face the Carolina Hurricanes at the RBC Center. Game time is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.

Carolina (10-10-3) picked up a big point Sunday night thanks to Eric Staal's goal with 7.3 seconds remaining in regulation that erased a 2-1 deficit in Washington. The Hurricanes lost in a shootout, but pulled within three points of a playoff spot.

Canadian fans will also be treated to the showdown featuring the Edmonton Oilers and Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place. Ottawa (11-12-1) is coming off a 3-0 win against Toronto on Saturday. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.

— Lightning forward J.T. Brown after his first Media Day experience on Tuesday in preparation of Game 1 on Wednesday
