It's the final day before the Christmas break, and 28 of the NHL's 30 teams will be in action.
Fourteen games are on the schedule, perhaps none bigger than the matchup between the Anaheim Ducks and Washington Capitals at Verizon Center (7 p.m. ET, PRIME, CSN-DC). Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau returns to Washington for the first time since being fired by the Capitals in November of 2011.
Boudreau's Ducks have won eight in a row, a franchise record.
