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.
It was definitely emotional. I really appreciated the fans. It was a cool feeling and it felt special and the ovation there at the start and then you kind of feel funny out there standing by yourself. Thinking back, I was saying just a bit ago, you think back just trying to make the NHL and then you kind of reflect on all the years being able to play for a great organization here in Calgary and all the fun I've had so far in my career. I feel very fortunate and blessed.
