NBCSN to televise doubleheader Monday
First place is still up for grabs in both conferences, and the Philadelphia Flyers and Vancouver Canucks will continue their pursuit as part of the NBC Sports Network's doubleheader Monday night.
First place is still up for grabs in both conferences, and the Philadelphia Flyers and Vancouver Canucks will continue their pursuit as part of the NBC Sports Network's doubleheader Monday night.

The Flyers, who clinched a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the 16th time in the last 17 seasons on Saturday, will host the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Wells Fargo Center as part of the NHL's six-game schedule. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on NBCSN in the United States and TSN2 in Canada.

Philadelphia (44-23-8) will be seeking its third straight victory. The Flyers are five points behind the New York Rangers for the No. 1 seed with only seven games remaining. 

The Lightning (34-33-7) are nine points out of a playoff spot with eight games left on their schedule. Tampa Bay reached the Eastern Conference Finals a season ago.

At 10 p.m. ET, the second game of NBCSN's doubleheader takes place from Vancouver, where the Canucks will host the Los Angeles Kings at Rogers Arena. Vancouver enters Monday's action four points behind the St. Louis Blues for the overall lead in the West, while the Kings (37-26-12) are tied with San Jose at 86 points apiece, but are currently in eighth place with one more regulation/overtime win. The game can also be seen in Canada on TSN.

One other game gets under way at 7:30 ET, as the Detroit Red Wings host the Columbus Blue Jackets at Joe Louis Arena. The Red Wings received a huge boost Saturday night, as captain Nicklas Lidstrom returned to the lineup after missing 11 games with an ankle injury.

At 8:30 p.m. ET, the Winnipeg Jets will attempt to inch closer to eighth place as they take on the Ottawa Senators at the MTS Centre. The Jets trail Washington by six points with seven games remaining.

In another huge Western Conference showdown, the Calgary Flames host the Dallas Stars at Scotiabank Saddledome at 9 p.m. ET. The Flames are just three points out, but must find a way to leapfrog three teams in order to get back into playoff position.

In the final two game of the evening, the Sharks will face the Colorado Avalanche at HP Pavilion, where two crucial points are on the line. That game is set to begin at 10:30 p.m. ET.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
