Will the Los Angeles Kings make the playoffs? Do the Florida Panthers still have a chance? Who will win the race for Connor McDavid? All of those questions need answers in the second half of the NHL season.
It is an unusually busy Monday night in the NHL with 12 games on the schedule. One of the best matchups is a Central Division game between the Nashville Predators and Chicago Blackhawks. The Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings is another big one.
The Chicago Blackhawks are looking to push their current winning streak to nine games when they visit the New York Islanders on Saturday night. Meanwhile, the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs meet in a rematch from Wednesday night.
