Those of you with Centre Ice packages are the lucky ones. You'll get a fight between the top two teams in the Eastern Conference. Monday, 7 p.m., NESN, Root TV.

Flyers at Sabres

This may not be a revenge game on the order of Milan Lucic and the Bruins coming back after Sabres goalie Ryan Miller was concussed, but it is the first game between these teams since Sabres' agitator Patrick Kaleta was suspended for head-butting Philadelphia's Jakub Voracek. The only thing is Kaleta has a groin injury and may not play. Wednesday, 7:30 p.m., TSN2, Versus.

Capitals at Senators

By now, new Capitals head coach Dale Hunter should be starting to get his team to buy into his program of more aggressive hockey. Wednesday, 7 p.m., TSN, RDS2.

Canucks at Senators

The goaltender drama in Vancouver comes to the end of a busy week. When the week started, Roberto Luongo was in the usual spot – the fans' doghouse – with understudy Cory Schneider stepping forward to restore the Canucks' fortunes. This game is the Canucks' fourth of the week, so maybe a verdict is at hand. Saturday, 7 p.m., CBC, RDS.
