If you’re out of the region and don’t have an NHL subscription, you may have to exert some effort, but these two games would be worth watching. However, if you don’t feel like looking around, you may want to actually take a hockey break tonight and just keep an eye on those scores and standings for your team.

You can always settle for your local game, too.
