The battle for first place in the Southeast Division will be shown on national television Monday night.
Just 24 hours after passing the Tampa Bay Lightning in the standings, the Washington Capitals will take on the Bolts at the St. Pete Time Forum. Game time is slated for 7 p.m. ET and can be seen on VERSUS in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada. The Caps moved into first with Sunday’s 3-2 overtime win at Florida.
Canadian fans will also be treated to the showdown featuring the Dallas Stars and Los Angeles Kings from the Staples Center. That game is set to begin at 10:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NHL Network in Canada. The Stars and Kings are separated by just one point in the Western Conference standings.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
