NHL.com @NHL
Canada and the United States will be celebrating two different holidays on Monday, but the NHL will honor both with a nine-game schedule.
   
Two matinees are on tap, as the Boston Bruins (2-2-0) host the Colorado Avalanche (2-1-1) at the TD Garden at 1 p.m. ET. One hour later, the New York Islanders (0-0-3) will look for their first win against the Los Angeles Kings (3-1-0) at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
   
The action continues Monday night as the New York Rangers look to make it five in a row, hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs at Madison Square Garden at 7 p.m. ET. Meanwhile, the New Jersey Devils will head down Interstate 95 as they visit Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Center. The Caps are just 2-2-1 despite having already scored 20 goals.
   
Two more games will start at 7:30 p.m. ET -- the Pittsburgh Penguins, who have won four of their first five, will visit the first-place Ottawa Senators (3-1-0). Also, the battle of the Floridian teams resumes as the Panthers (1-3-0) visit the Tampa Bay Lightning, who are coming off their first win of the season. Ryan Malone paced Tampa Bay with a hat trick in a 5-2 victory against Carolina on Saturday.
   
At 8 p.m. ET, the Calgary Flames -- who suffered their first loss in five games on Friday -- will visit the Chicago Blackhawks in a battle of two of the more talented teams in the Western Conference. That game can be seen in the U.S. on Versus.
   
In another 8 o'clock start, the Nashville Predators (2-1-0) will host the Edmonton Oilers, who improved to 2-1-1 with a 3-2 win against Montreal on Saturday. Nikolai Khabibulin made 33 saves in the victory.
   
The final game of the night is set to begin at 10:30 p.m. ET, when the San Jose Sharks (3-2-0) take on the Phoenix Coyotes at HP Pavilion. The Coyotes have lost two straight after getting off to a 2-0 start.
