Closing out the first half of the National Hockey League (NHL) season and leading into the Honda NHL All-Star Weekend, ESPN+ and Hulu will stream two exclusive, nationwide NHL games Tuesday night, as well as 15 out-of-market games this week*.
Tomorrow night’s first exclusive game on ESPN+ and Hulu features two of the NHL’s top teams as the Florida Panthers (31-9-5), in first place in the Atlantic Division with a league-leading 67 points, visit the New York Rangers (29-13-4), who are just two points behind the Carolina Hurricanes (31-9-2) in the Metropolitan Division, at Madison Square Garden at 7 p.m. ET. Bob Wischusen is on play-by-play, with analyst Brian Boucher and AJ Mleczko reporting.
The Rangers are led by Vezina Trophy favorite Igor Shesterkin and Chris Kreider, who is tied for the league lead in goals scored (31). Meanwhile, Florida’s Jonathan Huberdeau, an emerging Hart Trophy finalist, is tied atop the league in points (62).
In the second exclusive game tomorrow night, the Buffalo Sabres (14-23-7) will be out west to face the Golden Knights (26-16-3) in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena at 10 p.m. ET. The game is a homecoming of sorts for Buffalo’s Alex Tuch and Peyton Krebs who Vegas traded to the Sabres in exchange for Jack Eichel in November. Sean McDonough will be on the call, with Dominic Moore as analyst and Emily Kaplan reporting rinkside.
Studio coverage for both games Tuesday night will be hosted by John Buccigross, joined by Kevin Weekes and Ryan Callahan as analysts.
