FIVE GAMES TO WATCH
Maple Leafs at Bruins
Boston broke a four-game losing streak on the weekend by getting back to its tight defence. This game should see if the Bruins are consistent, although they have consistently beaten up Toronto this season. Monday, 7 p.m., Sportsnet Ontario.
Devils at Rangers
New York has a two-game losing streak going and is 4-5-1 in its last 10, as the Pittsburgh Penguins moved within a point of the Eastern Conference leaders with Sidney Crosby back. The Rangers need a win over the Devils to snap out of it. Monday, 7:30 p.m., TSN 2.
Flames at Avalanche
This game is important in the fight for the last two playoff spots in the Western Conference. Colorado was seventh before Sunday's games, while the Flames were three behind them and two behind eighth-place San Jose. Tuesday, 9 p.m., Sportsnet West.
Red Wings at Rangers
This is a tough test for New York, although Detroit has been stumbling lately. The Red Wings have a four-game losing streak and are 3-6-1 in their last 10 games. Wednesday, 7:30 p.m., TSN 2.
Jets at Capitals
Yet another important game in the playoff race, with Winnipeg breathing down Washington's neck in the race for the eighth and last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Friday, 7 p.m., TSN Jets.
