NHL games today: Complete TV schedule, April 18 matchups guide

NHL games today: The 2020-21 NHL season is in full swing, and things are really getting interesting as the second half of the schedule continues to unfold.

Of course, every game is a divisional matchup, and rivalries are hard-fought night in and night out. There are always marquee games on tap each evening, and the slate should make for plenty of quality hockey for fans to take in.

The slate of NHL games today is rather small, with only 12 teams set to hit the ice. It all starts at 12 EST, when the Washington Capitals (29-12-4) clash against the Boston Bruins (24-12-6). A clash between two Stanley Cup contenders is what this late stretch of the season is all about. While Boston is favored, don’t look past the Caps’ 15-6-2 record on the road.

Once that action concludes, hockey fans can decide between two intriguing matchups. The New York Rangers (22-16-6), who are scorching hot, will have a chance to extend their winning streak on Sunday against the New Jersey Devils. At the same time, the Pittsburgh Penguins (7–2-1 in last 10) will be battling for a victory and hoping the Caps lose, closing distance in the East.

Let’s dive into the remaining schedule for the NHL games today, and look ahead to some other upcoming face-offs.
