NHL games today: The 2020-21 NHL season is in full swing, and things are really getting interesting as the second half of the schedule continues to unfold.
Of course, every game is a divisional matchup, and rivalries are hard-fought night in and night out. There are always marquee games on tap each evening, and the slate should make for plenty of quality hockey for fans to take in.
The slate of NHL games today begins at 7 PM EST, with the puck dropping in two contests at the same time. The intrigue around these matchups centers on the North Division, as the Montreal Canadiens, who’ll be heavily favored at home tonight against Calgary, look to continue separating themselves in the race for fourth place. The Winnipeg Jets are in a tight battle for second with Edmonton, and should be able to get two points on the road versus Ottawa.
After an extremely discouraging stretch, the St. Louis Blues have won three straight to get off the mat and back into fourth in the West. However, they’re facing the league-leading Colorado Avalanche in Denver on Wednesday, so their hot streak may come to a crashing halt.
There’s plenty of intrigue in the later face-offs, too. The Arizona Coyotes are the closest to St. Louis in the standings but are on a four-game skid as they travel to Minnesota to take on the Wild. Vegas has a game in hand on Colorado and trails by only four points for the division lead, so the Golden Knights’ showdown with the Los Angeles Kings holds plenty of significance. The San Jose Sharks must take advantage of being home against lowly Anaheim to keep pace as well.
Let’s dive into the remaining schedule for the NHL games today, and look ahead to some other upcoming face-offs.
