The NHL TV schedule for the week of December 2 is right here and we here at Eyes On Isles have you covered for your viewing pleasure.
The Islanders continue to struggle, dropping their last two games at home to Detroit and Washington but look to get back on track with what should be a high intensity game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday. Following that the team hits the road for a 5 game stretch out West with some real tough matchups. The importance of two points at home against the Pens is that much more heightened.
Calvin Dehaan looked comfortable in his first game of the season (second of career) against the Caps but will be put to a much more vigorous test on the road trip when he defends against the likes of David Backes, Jeff Carter, Corey Perry, Joe Thornton and Radim Vrbata.
The national broadcast schedule looks lively as well, highlighted by a Wednesday meeting between the Philadelphia Flyers and Detroit Red Wings from Joe Louis Arena. Friday on NHL Network, a huge Western conference tilt between the Ducks and Blackhawks should be mandatory viewing.
So sit back in your favorite chair and enjoy a week of exciting NHL action. Please place all your trash in the proper receptacle and rinse your dishes before placing them in the dishwasher.
