Get your hockey week started with Cisco NHL Live at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network with Steve Mears and EJ Hradek. Who will be the next coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning? We'll be joined by NHL Network Insider Bob McKenzie to find out who the front runners are to take over in Tampa Bay, and you won't want to miss Barry Melrose's interpretation of what Steve Yzerman might have said to his team after releasing Guy Boucher.
You never know who's going to pop up on NHL Live, and today we have two of the best in the game. Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby will join us to talk about his new teammates, and the NHL's First Star of the Week, Alex Ovechkin, will discuss the Capitals' three-game win streak.
With seven games on Monday's schedule we have plenty to discuss, including a Northeast Division battle between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins, and a Western Conference tilt between the Los Angeles Kings and Chicago Blackhawks on NBC Sports Network. We'll get an in-depth preview of each game when we go inside TD Garden and United Center via the Cisco NHL Arena Cam.
Don't forget to submit your #AskEJ through Twitter via @NHLNetwork or @EJHradek_NHL, and stick around for the shootout as EJ picks his winners for every game on the schedule.
