Oilers at Blackhawks
Every game Chicago plays right now is worthy of interest as we wait to see when it loses its first game in regulation time. An Edmonton win would definitely be an upset.
Monday, 8:30 p.m., Sportsnet West, CSN Chicago.
Ducks at Kings
Any game with Quick versus Fasth merits attention. But this is worth more than lame puns about Los Angeles goaltender Jonathan Quick and his Ducks counterpart Viktor Fasth. The Kings are finally waking up and their regional rivals will be a good test.
Monday. 10:30 p.m., Prime, Fox Sports West.
Red Wings at Kings
Detroit finally shook a five-game winless streak on the weekend and are now in a chase with five other teams including the Kings for the last three playoff spots in the Western Conference.
Wednesday, 10 p.m., TSN2, NBCSN, Fox Sports Detroit.
Blackhawks at Blues
Now that St. Louis goaltender Jaroslav Halak is healthy the Blues are starting to look like the conference champs many envisioned.
Thursday, 8 p.m., CSN Chicago, Fox Sports Midwest.
Canadiens at Bruins
The unlikely Eastern Conference leaders as of Sunday will head to Boston for a good old rivalry game.
Sunday, 7:30 p.m., RDS, NBCSN, TSN-Habs.
