Sunday, November 21st – 7:30 pm Eastern SiriusXM 91
Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Islanders
After wandering through the hockey desert for 13 games, the New York Islanders are finally home in their brand-new arena. Their second game in the new barn is this evening’s tilt against the Maple Leafs, who have rediscovered their scoring touch.
Monday, November 22nd – 10:30 pm Eastern SiriusXM 91
Carolina Hurricanes at San Jose Sharks
Over a month into the season, the Hurricanes continue to rack up the wins, whether at home, or on the road. Tonight they are on the road, facing a Sharks team that have had a better start than most expected.
Tuesday, November 23rd – 7”00 pm Eastern SiriusXM 91
Philadelphia Flyers at Tampa Bay Lightning
Can the Lightning make it three Stanley Cup Championships in a row? A long way to go before those questions can be answered, and one has to get to the post-season first. After a relatively slow start, Tampa have looked better recently, and this evening play host to a Flyers team that missed the playoff cut by 13 points last spring, but are off to an impressive start this time around.
Wednesday, November 24th – 7:00 pm Eastern SiriusXM 91
Montreal Canadiens at Washington Capitals
Alex Ovechkin keeps proving that age is just a number (he turned 36 in September), as Ovie continues to light the lamp at a prodigious rate (12 goals in 16 games, and third in league scoring with 26 points). Only Jaromir Jagr, Gordie Howe, and Wayne Gretzky are ahead of The Great 8 in all-time NHL regular season goal scoring. But the Capitals are more than Ovechkin, and their impressive start has them smack dab in the middle of the playoff race in the tough Metropolitan Division. As for Montreal, so far it’s been a season to forget.
