Hockey analyst, broadcaster and former NHL goalie Darren Eliot will offer some insight into the trending topics around the League on Tuesday when he joins hosts Don LaGreca and E.J. Hradek on NHL Live! between 12-2 p.m. ET on NHL Network, XM Radio and NHL.com.
Kaberle will face his former team at the arena he called home until being traded last month when the Boston Bruins come to Toronto in one of 11 games on Saturday's NHL schedule. The game can be seen at 7 p.m. ET in the United States on the NHL Network, as well as on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada. Both teams are trying to rebound from road losses on Thursday -- Boston fell 4-3 in overtime at Nashville, while the Leafs were beaten 4-0 by Florida.
With the GM meetings in full swing Monday in Boca Raton, Fla., NHL Network will be broadcasting a special report tonight at 6 ET to recap the days events.
While the League's General Managers are going to discuss several issues over the next few days, great attention is being placed on how the League will respond to headshots and concussion in the game. In that vein, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman unveiled a 5-point plan Monday intended to help reduce concussions across the board.
With the League's GMs eager to improve player safety, Bettman's new plan is one of multiple topics expected to be discussed on tonight's special report on NHL Network. The show will be hosted by Deb Placey, E.J. Hradek and Craig Button.
Florida Panthers defenseman Mike Weaver will be among the guests when NHL Live! is broadcast live from the GM Meetings in Boca Raton, Fla., on Monday, scheduled from noon-2 p.m. on NHL Network and NHL.com and broadcast on XM Radio.
Weaver, 32, has appeared in 69 games for the Panthers this season and has 2 goals and 10 assists. Weaver has also played for Atlanta, Los Angeles, Vancouver and St. Louis in his NHL career.
The Buffalo Sabres have already had an excellent road trip -- going 4-1-1 away from home is a nice showing by anyone. But with little room for error as they chase a playoff berth, the Sabres will try to cap their seven-game trip with a win in Toronto on Saturday.
The Leafs need the game every bit as much -- they enter the night six points behind Buffalo and the New York Rangers, who own the last two playoff berths in the Eastern Conference.
The 7 p.m. ET start, one of 10 games on Saturday's schedule, can be seen on the NHL Network in the United States and on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada.
Calgary Flames GM Jay Feaster will be among the guests on NHL Live! Thursday, scheduled from noon-2 p.m. on NHL Network and NHL.com and broadcast on XM Radio.
Feaster replaced Darryl Sutter on Dec. 28, 2010. The Flames have surged back into playoff contention since then and entered Wednesday night's action in fifth place in the Western Conference at 33-23-9.
Washington Capitals GM George McPhee will be among the guests on NHL Live! Tuesday, scheduled from noon-2 p.m. on NHL Network and NHL.com and broadcast on XM Radio.
McPhee was busy over the past few days, claiming Marco Sturm off waivers on Saturday before acquiring Dennis Wideman and Jason Arnott in separate deals on Monday before the NHL trade deadline.
Also scheduled to appear to speak with co-hosts Don La Greca, E.J. Hradek and Eddie Olczyk are "Five For Fighting's" John Ondrasik, USA Today's Kevin Allen, TSN's Bob McKenzie and Carolina Hurricanes play-by-play announcer John Forslund.
