Here’s a look at the best matchups in the NHL this week.

Montreal Canadiens at Pittsburgh Penguins

Friday, Feb. 14 at 7:00 p.m. ET

Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day better than scoring great tickets for your loved one. The Pittsburgh Penguins (34-15-5, 73 points) and Montreal Canadiens (27-23-7, 61 points) hit the ice Friday night in what’s bound to be a passionate affair. The Canadiens, fifth in the Atlantic, are on a late-season surge as they look to claw back into a wild-card spot, while the Penguins are within striking distance of the Washington Capitals for first place in the Metropolitan. Any chance to see Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby in action on home ice is definitely worth the cost of admission.

Los Angeles Kings at Colorado Avalanche - Stadium Series

Saturday, Feb. 15 at 8:00 p.m. ET

The hottest ticket this week is undoubtedly a seat at the 2020 Stadium Series matchup at Falcon Stadium between the Colorado Avalanche and Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. This outdoor game will be the first matchup of the season between these two teams, with the upstart Avs (32-16-6, 70 points) quickly establishing themselves as the league’s must-watch team this year. The Kings are on a much different trajectory this season (19-33-5, 43 points) and will certainly have something to prove sitting at the bottom of the Pacific Division. It’s almost a guaranteed night to see Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen light it up.

Nashville Predators at St. Louis Blues

Saturday, Feb. 15 at 3:00 p.m. ET

This Central Division matchup features the defending Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues (32-15-9, 73 points) and the Nashville Predators (26-21-7, 59 points), who will faceoff in a home-and-home this weekend with massive playoff implications. The Blues sit atop the division, while the Predators are just on the outside of a wild-card spot.

Boston Bruins at New York Rangers

Sunday, Feb. 16 at 3:30 p.m. ET

What’s not to love about an Original Six matchup at Madison Square Garden on a Sunday afternoon? The league-leading Boston Bruins (34-11-12, 80 points) head to the Big Apple to take on the New York Rangers (27-23-4, 58 points). Boston is simply on a tear this season, led by the Perfection Line of David Pastrnak, Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron who have been a disaster for opposing teams all season. Led by Broadway stars including Artemi Panarin and Mika Zibanejad, the Rangers are an exciting group to watch despite sitting at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, boasting the 10th best offense in the league.

Washington Capitals at Vegas Golden Knights

Monday, Feb. 17 at 6:00 p.m. ET

The Metropolitan-leading Washington Capitals (36-14-5, 77 points) are consistently near the top of Stanley Cup odds this season with many thanks to an incredible year from captain Alex Ovechkin, who is only two goals away from becoming the eighth member of the 700-goal club in the NHL. With 40 goals already this year, he’s getting better with age like a fine wine. The Vegas Golden Knights (28-21-8, 64 points) need the points as they’re holding onto a playoff position in the Pacific with the Winnipeg Jets and Calgary Flames nipping at their heels.
