A very quiet week on the NHL TV schedule as we enter the Christmas break. Teams will play tonight then do not return to work until Thursday, December 26 in an effort to properly allow all players to spend time with the ones that matter most, their families.
The Islanders continue to struggle through the 2013-14 season and this week will play a road game against the Red Wings before heading back home to Long Island. The Devils will then come to Nassau Coliseum on Saturday.
On the national stage, two games that do not project to get much viewership, as the Wild take on the Flyers and the Red Wings battle the Panthers.
Everyone have a safe and happy holiday season.
