Tonight’s slate:
Maple Leafs @ Bruins, 7:00 ET
Capitals @ Flyers, 7:00
Canadiens @ Penguins, 7:00
Jets @ Senators, 7:30
Islanders @ Lightning, 7:30
Sabres @ Panthers, 7:30

Game of the night:
Washington Capitals (5-0-0) @ Philadelphia Flyers (4-0-1)
7:00 ET… TV: NHL Network (US), Local Networks

Players to watch:
WSH- Alex Ovechkin
Will Ovechkin be able to turn things around against the Flyers? He does have 20 goals in 22 career games against Philly…
PHI- Brayden Schenn
Schenn, who a lot of pundits picked to be the Calder winner this year, will be making his season debut.

Starting goaltenders:
WSH- Tomas Vokoun (2011-12 stats: 4-0-0, 1.94 GAA)
PHI- Ilya Bryzgalov (2011-12 stats: 3-0-1, 1.99 GAA)

Injury report:
WSH- Michal Neuvirth (foot, doubtful), Jay Beagle (head, doubtful), Tom Poti (groin, out), John Erskine (shoulder, out)
PHI- Andreas Nodl (undisclosed, questionable), Blair Betts (knee, out), Ian Laperriere (concussion, out)

Game thoughts:
Is it safe to say that the Capitals and Flyers are the two best teams in the Eastern Conference right now? I think so. Bruce Boudreau’s club is off to its first ever 5-0 start, while Claude Giroux and company have been impressive in the early going despite the off-season overhaul. It seems like whenever these two face-off it’s close, exciting and decided late in the game. Coming off a seven-goal performance, I think the Flyers win this one… but it may take overtime/shootout.
Prediction: Flyers 3, Capitals 2 (SO)

The rest of today’s predictions:
Bruins over Maple Leafs
Penguins over Canadiens
Jets over Senators
Lightning over Islanders
Panthers over Sabres
Blackhawks over Avalanche
Rangers over Flames
Wild over Oilers
Canucks over Predators
Coyotes over Kings
