Wednesday, November 2

Nationally televised in the United States and/or Canada

Detroit Red Wings at Philadelphia Flyers (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN; TVA Sports in Canada)

Locally televised in the United States

Vancouver Canucks at Montréal Canadiens (7:30 p.m. ET; Sportsnet and RDS in Canada)

Best bets: Canucks-Canadiens, Red Wings-Flyers

This would be the quietest day of the week aside from Monday, which doesn’t have any hockey at all. However, that doesn’t mean you don’t have anything to watch. Although you’ll have to resort to interesting means to watch Canucks-Habs if you’re in the States, the game may turn out to be a very good one. Both teams currently are near the top of their respective divisions. The Canucks haven’t done so well on the road, so the team will look to work that out as soon as possible…although it may not happen against the Canadiens.

In America, you can watch Detroit try and take its game back out on the road to take on Philadelphia, who doesn’t like its mixed at-home record right now. Detroit also wants to catch up to Montréal, so we suppose the Red Wings will root for the Canucks to pull off the win.
