NBCSN, TSN2 to televise Wild-Avalanche on Tuesday
Two teams desperately fighting for a playoff spot in the Western Conference will clash in front of a nationally-televised audience Tuesday night.
Two teams desperately fighting for a playoff spot in the ultra-competitive Western Conference will clash in front of a nationally-televised audience Tuesday night.

The Colorado Avalanche -- who currently sit just one point out of eighth place in the West, will host the Minnesota Wild at the Pepsi Center. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network in the United States and TSN2 in Canada.

Minnesota (28-28-10) will be looking to avoid a three-game skid. The Wild trail eighth-place San Jose by seven points heading into Tuesday's action.

Five of 12 games begin at 7 p.m. ET. Randy Carlyle makes his home debut as coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs as they host the Boston Bruins at the Air Canada Centre, while the New York Rangers face the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center. Also, Philadelphia hosts Detroit; Carolina travels to Washington and Phoenix heads to Columbus.

The Tampa Bay Lightning, who have gotten right back into the mix with four straight victories, face the Ottawa Senators at the Tampa Bay Times Forum at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Two games get under way at 8 p.m. ET -- the St. Louis Blues host the Chicago Blackhawks at the Scottrade Center, while the Los Angeles Kings face the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena.

Also at 9 p.m. ET, the Montreal Canadiens travel to Calgary to take on the Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome. That game can be seen on RDS in Canada.

In the final two games of the evening, the Vancouver Canucks host the Dallas Stars at Rogers Arena (10 p.m. ET), while the Edmonton Oilers face the Sharks at HP Pavilion at 10:30 p.m. ET.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
