Two powerhouses in the Eastern Conference are set to do battle on Tuesday night as part of a three-game schedule in the NHL.
The Philadelphia Flyers
, who are consistently one of the top teams in the Atlantic Division, will get the action started at 7 p.m. ET against the Washington Capitals
at the Verizon Center. Washington, led by superstar Alex Ovechkin
, have built a five-point lead in the Southeast Division at 6-2-2. The game can be seen in the U.S. on Versus and on TSN and RDS in Canada.
It's a Northwest Division showdown at 9:30 p.m. ET, as the first-place Colorado Avalanche
(8-1-2) take on the Edmonton Oilers
at Rexall Place. Edmonton currently sits in third place at 6-4-1, although they are 5-1-1 on home ice.
In the final game of the night, the Detroit Red Wings
will look to get back on track against the Vancouver Canucks
at G.M. Place. Opening faceoff is slated for 10 p.m. ET. Detroit, which is without Johan Franzen
until February at the earliest, is off to a 3-4-2 start. The Canucks (6-5-0) are coming off a 2-0 win against Edmonton on Sunday night that lifted them above .500 for the first time this season.
