Nationally televised in the United States and/or Canada

Winnipeg Jets at Detroit Red Wings (7:30 p.m. ET, NHL Network, Fox Sports Detroit; TVA Sports and TSN3 in Canada)

Locally televised in the United States and/or televised in Canada

Montréal Canadiens at Columbus Blue Jackets (7 p.m. ET, Fox Sports Ohio; Sportsnet East and RDS in Canada)

Arizona Coyotes at Anaheim Ducks (10 p.m. ET, Fox Sports West and Arizona Plus)

Best bet: Coyotes-Ducks

You may have to stay up late for this one, depending on where you are, but these two teams want to move up in the Pacific division early, because the Oilers in particular have shown themselves to be rather good at winning as of late. Can the Ducks round back into form at home after playing a significant portion of their games away so far?

Look in at Jets-Red Wings, too, though that game mostly has bearing on point totals for each team and won’t result in any major point swings thanks to being in different conferences, let alone divisions.

Take a peek at Habs-Blue Jackets to see how the Habs are doing, but the Blue Jackets have not had a great start to the season so far, and that may not change against one of the top-tier teams in the early season.
