Preview Roundups
October 08, 2019
Carolina at Florida 7:00 PM ET
The Carolina Hurricanes seek their fourth straight victory to open the season and hope to make things a little easier on themselves in the process when they visit the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night. The Hurricanes have had to rally in all three games, beating Montreal in a shootout and registering overtime victories over 2018-19 Eastern Conference division winners Washington and Tampa Bay.
Edmonton at NY Islanders 7:00 PM ET
Another playoff miss led to a change behind the bench for the Edmonton Oilers, who have started off on a positive note under new coach Dave Tippett by winning a pair of one-goal decisions at home. The Oilers will get a better barometer of where they stand with an upcoming four-game road trip that begins with a visit to the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.
Winnipeg at Pittsburgh 7:00 PM ET
The Pittsburgh Penguins secured their first victory of the season with a seven-goal outburst Saturday, but the news is not all good entering Tuesday’s home matchup with the Winnipeg Jets. Center Evgeni Malkin left Saturday’s 7-2 triumph over Columbus after he was knocked into the boards, did not practice Monday, and coach Mike Sullivan told reporters following the workout that Malkin and fellow center Nick Bjugstad could be sidelined “longer term.”
Dallas at Washington 7:00 PM ET
The Washington Capitals will welcome a familiar face to the lineup on Tuesday when they complete a two-game homestand against the Dallas Stars. Evgeny Kuznetsov, who was suspended for the first three games of the season by the NHL for "inappropriate conduct," will join a Capitals' team that posted a 2-0-1 mark despite mustering just seven goals in his absence.
Anaheim at Detroit 7:30 PM ET
The Detroit Red Wings owned one of the most impressive streaks in sports, advancing to the postseason for 25 straight years before missing the playoffs each of the past three seasons. The Anaheim Ducks also sat out the playoffs last season after six straight appearances but, like the Red Wings, are off to a 2-0-0 start entering Tuesday's matchup in Detroit.
San Jose at Nashville 8:00 PM ET
The San Jose Sharks hope that stepping out of the Pacific Time Zone -- and the Pacific Division, for that matter -- will help them finally locate the winner's circle. After being outscored 12-3 in their first three contests, the Sharks look for better results on Tuesday when they continue their three-game road trip against the Nashville Predators.
Los Angeles at Calgary 9:00 PM ET
Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty couldn't help himself after initially saying he was done talking about Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk. Doughty levied a verbal shot against his familiar foe one day before the Pacific Division rivals take the ice on Tuesday at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta.
Boston at Vegas 10:00 PM ET
Despite losing in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, there has been no hangover for the Boston Bruins, who opened the season with a pair of one-goal victories while allowing a single tally. Another rugged test awaits the Bruins as they continue their season-opening four-game road trip with a visit to the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday night.
