NHL Live with Steve Mears and E.J. Hradek, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, begins the countdown to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. With one week remaining in the regular season and six spots still up for grabs, the hosts discuss who they think will make the cut and who will fall a little short.
The New Jersey Devils are one of those teams not currently in a playoff spot but still in the fight. They host the Calgary Flames on Monday and we'll go out on Arena Cam to Prudential Center to discuss their chances with MSG analyst Ken Daneyko.
The Dallas Stars are fighting for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference, and we'll chat with coach Lindy Ruff about their prospects.
Also, NHL Network analyst Barry Melrose will be on the show for his weekly coaches chat, discussing his choices for the Jack Adams Award as coach of the year.
