Five NHL games to watch Add to ...

Capitals at Hurricanes

Toronto Maple Leafs fans should be watching this one to make sure Washington’s woes continue in the playoff turtle race with their lads. Others can watch to see if the return of Caps defenceman Mike Green helps get them going. Monday, 7:30 p.m., TSN2.

Devils at Maple Leafs

The Devils are one of the NHL’s hottest teams while the Leafs are one of the coldest. But the Torontonians need to snap out of it before the Capitals do. Tuesday, 7 p.m., Sportsnet Ontario.

Red Wings at Blackhawks

Detroit, as always, is flying high with no worries as the trade deadline approaches. Chicago, on the other hand, still has to decide if its modest two-game winning streak means its goaltending worries are over or a trade is necessary. Tuesday, 8 p.m., TSN2.

Kings at Avalanche

Here is a chance to see just how bad the Los Angeles offence is. Then again, Colorado may not be the best team for this demonstration. And maybe the Kings will have Rick Nash by this time. Wednesday, 9 p.m., TSN2.

Sharks at Maple Leafs

Put the kids to bed early for this one. It’s not for family entertainment. Think the poor unsuspecting swimmers on the beach and Jaws. Thursday, 7 p.m., TSN.
