Capitals-Rangers highlights television schedule

Tuesday, 11.09.2010 / 12:32 AM / Game Previews

Hockey fans across North America will have the opportunity to watch one of the best players on the planet Tuesday night.

Alex Ovechkin, who hasn't scored fewer than 46 goals in a season since entering the NHL in 2005, invades Madison Square Garden as the Washington Capitals take on the New York Rangers at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Tuesday's showdown can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.

Canadian fans will also be treated to the rare matchup between the Vancouver Canucks and Montreal Canadiens, which also begins at 7:30. That game can be seen on RDS.

Rangers-Devils battle highlights busy Friday night

Thursday, 11.04.2010 / 9:19 PM / Game Previews

The New Jersey Devils are glad to be home after a six-game trip that began 12 days ago in New York. The Rangers return the visit on Friday night when they come to the Prudential Center for the first time this season in one of eight games on the schedule.

The Devils hope to have goalie Martin Brodeur in the lineup for the 7 p.m. ET start. He had to leave Wednesday's 5-3 win at Chicago after taking a shot in the elbow.

Also at 7 p.m., Boston tries for its third win in a month against the Washington Capitals when the Bruins come to the Verizon Center. That game can be seen on the NHL Network in the United States. Boston is coming off a 5-2 win at Buffalo on Wednesday, the same night the Caps outlasted Toronto 5-4 in a shootout.

Rangers pay first trip to Philadelphia

Wednesday, 11.03.2010 / 10:16 PM / Game Previews

The New York Rangers hope their first trip to Philadelphia this season is better than their final visit last season.

The Rangers came to Philadelphia on April 11 for a winner-take-all game -- the winner got the last playoff berth in the East, the loser went home. Philadelphia spotted the Rangers an early lead, tied the game in the third period and won 2-1 in a shootout, triggering a playoff run that went all the way to Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final. The Rangers simply went home.

They're back Thursday night for their first meeting of the season, and both teams are coming off 3-2 home wins on Monday night; the Rangers beat Chicago, while the Flyers edged Carolina.

NHL ready for the season's busiest night

Saturday, 10.30.2010 / 1:03 AM / Game Previews

The NHL has deeded Halloween to the trick-or-treaters. But Saturday night belongs to the skaters and goaltender –and to hockey fans, who have their choice of 14 games on the busiest night of the 2010-11 season. The Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers are the only teams that get the night off.

The action starts with six games at 7 p.m. ET.

The New York Rangers, coming off a 4-3 home loss to Carolina on Friday, pay their second visit in nine days to Toronto, where the Leafs will try to rebound after a 2-0 loss at Boston on Thursday. The game can be seen in the U.S. on the NHL Network and on CBC as part of Hockey Night in Canada.

Habs go for home-and-home sweep

Thursday, 10.28.2010 / 9:03 PM / Game Previews

Two nights after beating the New York Islanders 5-3 at the Bell Centre, the Montreal Canadiens would like nothing better that to complete a home-and-home sweep. They'll get the chance on Friday night when the teams reconvene at the Nassau Coliseum for the back end of the home-and-home series -- one of six games on the NHL schedule.

The game starts at 7 p.m. ET and can be seen on RDS and regionally on TSN.

Two other games also start at 7. Pittsburgh comes home after a road trip that ended with a 5-3 loss at Tampa Bay on Wednesday to host Philadelphia in a game that can be seen on the NHL Network in the United States. The Flyers have had two nights off since a 6-3 home victory against Buffalo.

Leafs-Bruins highlights a busy Thursday night

Thursday, 10.28.2010 / 1:59 AM / Game Previews

Toronto's Phil Kessel, off to one of the fastest starts of any player in the NHL, will try to do something on Thursday that he failed to do all last season -- score a goal against his old team.

Kessel, who was traded to Toronto by Boston just over a year ago, went scoreless in six games against the Bruins as a Leaf. He'll try to break that slump when he and his teammates come to TD Garden for the first meeting of the season between the Northeast Division rivals. Game time is 7 p.m. ET.

Two of the other seven games on the schedule also get under way at 7. Florida, a 3-1 loser at Toronto on Tuesday, continues a swing through Eastern Canada with a stop in Ottawa. Edmonton, which lost 5-4 in a shootout at Calgary in Tuesday, visits Columbus.

Hurricanes ready for home opener

Tuesday, 10.26.2010 / 6:09 PM / Game Previews

After visiting Russia, Finland, Ottawa, Vancouver, San Jose, Los Angeles and Phoenix, the Carolina Hurricanes are glad to be back in Raleigh.

The 'Canes, who've traveled more than 15,000 miles since their last home preseason game 26 days ago, become the last of the NHL's 30 teams to play its home opener when the Washington Capitals come to the RBC Center Wednesday night for a 7 p.m. ET faceoff.

The Hurricanes return home with a 4-3-0 record after a 4-3 overtime victory in Phoenix on Saturday -- a game they won in OT after blowing a 3-0 lead in the final 15 minutes of regulation. The Capitals also are coming off an overtime victory; they beat Atlanta 4-3 at home on Saturday.

The Caps-Hurricanes game is one of six on the NHL schedule.

Bruins go for five in a row

Friday, 10.22.2010 / 10:31 PM / Game Previews

Two weeks ago, the Boston Bruins began their season with a 5-2 loss to Phoenix in Prague as part of the Compuware NHL Premiere series. Since then, they've been unbeatable -- and on Saturday, they'll try to stay that way.

The Bruins have won four in a row since their season-opening loss, and they'll try to make it five when the New York Rangers come to TD Garden for one of 13 games on the NHL schedule. Both teams are coming off wins on Thursday: Boston beat Washington 4-1 and the Rangers won 2-1 at Toronto.

The Rangers-Bruins game is one of seven that get under way at 7 p.m. ET.

Montreal, which beat the Senators a week ago at the Bell Centre, pays a return trip to Ottawa for a game that will be shown on CBC. Toronto visits Philadelphia, a 3-2 loser to Anaheim on Thursday in a game also being shown on CBC, as well as on the NHL Network in the United States.

Leafs, Flyers set for Saturday showdown on NHL Network

Friday, 10.22.2010 / 7:10 PM / Game Previews

Toronto has dropped its last two games. Philadelphia has dropped three in a row. One of those streaks will end Saturday night when the Leafs visit the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center

The game, one of 13 on Saturday's schedule, airs at 7 p.m., on NHL Network in the U.S.

American fans can plan on great NHL matchups every Thursday and Saturday night as part of an expanded U.S. schedule of live games on the NHL Network.

The Leafs-Flyers game is also part of CBC's Hockey Night in Canada doubleheader, though some areas of Canada will see the game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place.

Leafs go for 4 in a row on busy Friday

Thursday, 10.14.2010 / 8:58 PM / Game Previews

At 3-0-0, the Toronto Maple Leafs are off to their best start since 1999-2000, the last time they won the Northeast Division title. It's a tremendous turnaround for a team that finished next-to-last in the overall standings last season following an 0-7-1 start.

The Leafs will try to make it four in a row to start the season when they visit Madison Square Garden for a meeting with the New York Rangers, one of seven games on Friday night's NHL schedule.

The 7 p.m. ET game is the Rangers' home opener. They've been off since a 6-4 road loss to the Islanders on Monday. The Leafs won their first road game of the season by winning 4-3 at Pittsburgh on Wednesday.
