ESPN NHL Experts Emily Kaplan & Greg Wyshynski Select Their Key Matchups

Chicago Blackhawks & New York Islanders Lead Appearances with Six

NHL action on ESPN+, the leading direct-to-consumer sports streaming service, continues in February with a 51-game slate featuring all 31 teams at least once. The action heats up Saturday, February 1, when Nathan MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche take on Travis Konecny and the Philadelphia Flyers at 7 p.m. ET. Then, it’s a Pacific Division showdown between the Edmonton Oilers and the Calgary Flames in the Battle of Alberta at 10 p.m.

The Chicago Blackhawks and New York Islanders lead appearances for the month with six each on ESPN+, all available to subscribers via the ESPN App.

ESPN.com NHL writers Emily Kaplan and Greg Wyshynski’s must-watch games this month include:

Kaplan:

  • Feb. 4: Edmonton Oilers at Arizona Coyotes
    • “Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and company, visit the desert and see a familiar face: Taylor Hall – also known as, the one that got away.”
  • Feb. 10: New York Islanders at Washington Capitals
    • “It’s always fun when coach Barry Trotz faces his former team, the Capitals. The key matchup here is Alex Ovechkin versus the Isles’ stingy defense.”
  • Feb. 20: Pittsburgh Penguins at Toronto Maple Leafs
    • “Two of the top 10 offenses in the league square off, but this game also brings us a showdown between two of the best centers, period: Auston Matthews versus Sidney Crosby.”

Wyshynski:

  • Feb. 3: Florida Panthers at Toronto Maple Leafs
    • “The Leafs find themselves chasing coach Joel Quenneville’s Panthers in the Atlantic Division and MVP candidate Matthews leads that chase.”
  • Feb. 13: Washington Capitals at Colorado Avalanche
    • “A possible Stanley Cup Final preview? The loaded Avalanche are contenders in the West while the Capitals rule the East, powered by Ovechkin’s chase of the all-time NHL goals record.”
  • Feb. 22: Boston Bruins at Vancouver Canucks
    • “The Bruins are favored to make the Stanley Cup Final for a second straight season. They take on one the West’s biggest surprises, one of the most-talented young teams and the franchise Boston defeated for the [Stanley] Cup in 2011. Vancouver fans still remember Brad Marchand quite well, and he remembers them.”
