Evan’s NHL Daily: All 32 Teams In Action Tuesday, Georgiev A Star



Georgiev nhl

The day has finally come. All 32 NHL teams will be in action on Tuesday evening, something that has only happened once before. It will happen again later this season, but having it take place on Tuesday might not have been the best idea. I explain why below.

With the Colorado Avalanche, Alexandar Georgiev has been the best player on the team this season, and on Monday, he was rewarded by the NHL for his work.

All that and more in this Tuesday edition of Evan’s Daily.

Colorado Hockey Now

Everyone in Colorado is coming around to the idea of Alexandar Georgiev being a star, and now the NHL has recognized him as one. On Monday, he was named the second star of the week by the league.

The new NHL Edge hub is pretty fun, even if it is pretty wonky, and we took a look at some fun Avalanche statistics that player tracking has brought forth. We knew Nathan MacKinnon was fast, but he’s not the only fast player on the team.

The Avalanche are in Long Island to take on the Islanders Tuesday night, and we’ll have all the coverage for you here.

Around The NHL

Yes, all 32 teams are going to be playing on Tuesday night, and the league has wisely staggered the start times for every game. Theoretically, there should always be a game going on. That’s pretty cool, right?

My question…why did they pick Tuesday? I won’t complain about all that hockey being played, but the decision by the league to have this all take place on night one of the NBA is a strange one. No, not everyone cares about the NBA. I really don’t, to be honest, but the Denver Nuggets will be raising their banner that night, and the NBA is a more popular league by far. If you’re looking to grow the game with a fun night like this, you’d think the NHL would want the spotlight on them. That won’t be the case.

ESPN is going to be running their own version of the NFL Redzone, and it’ll be interesting to see how that works out. Hockey might be a little too chaotic for something like that to work, but it’s a fun idea, and I’m all for that.

The first game starts at 4 PM MST, and the last one starts at 9 PM. It’ll be one long night of hockey.

National Hockey Now

Has the slow start for the Pittsburgh Penguins shattered the optimism around the team?

Just like in Colorado, the standard is just higher for the Vegas Golden Knights. Bruce Cassidy expects more from their top line.

Has age finally caught up to Alex Ovechkin?

The Detroit Red Wings are showing why experience matters. (+)

Cal Foote is getting another chance in the NHL.
