Best bets: Flyers-Lightning, Blackhawks-Sharks

Sometimes, it’s best to just settle in and enjoy the Wednesday Night Rivalry on NBCSN. Both games represent cross-division but intra-conference matches. The Lightning have started to rise up the rankings, and the Flyers have also crawled up to the middle of the pack. Meanwhile, the Sharks find themselves in a suddenly tough division in the Pacific, while the Blackhawks have rounded into form.

Alternatively, look at the Penguins-Rangers rematch.
