Who knew the NHL still plays outdoor games? Well, apparently the league believes the shark has yet to be jumped, so Toronto will travel to the Naval Academy in Maryland to play Washington on Saturday evening.
Prior to that, we’ve got a matinee featuring two playoff teams, as the Flyers travel to Tampa Bay riding a seven-game road winning streak.
Off we go.
Information is current as of Friday evening. Check back during the day and keep an eye on our Twitter handle for any updates.
Philadelphia Flyers @ Tampa Bay Lightning — NO LINE YET
1 p.m. ET
Pace Watch: Philadelphia plays a very structured system, and as a result it operates at the second-slowest “pace” (shot attempts for per 60 minutes + 5-on-5 shot attempts against per 60 minutes) in the entire NHL. Tampa Bay plays at a much higher tempo and ranks 10th in the league with a pace of 101.66. That’s over six shot attempts higher than Philly. — Michael Leboff
