37 NHL Power Play games will stream exclusively on ESPN+

The NHL season continues this week with six exclusive games on ESPN and ESPN+/Hulu, starting with an ESPN doubleheader Tuesday night that saw the Boston Bruins, who lead the Atlantic Division, defeat the Sidney Crosby-led Pittsburgh Penguins in the PPG Visit Points Arena. The traditional game feed and a special Star Watch presentation – with isolated cameras and stats focusing on the Bruins’ Brad Marchand, who returned from injury last week with a three-point performance on his season debut, and Penguins- Captain Sidney Crosby – will also be available on ESPN+. Led by Trevor Zegras and Troy Terry, the Anaheim Ducks visit the San Jose Sharks and Erik Karlsson at the SAP Center as both teams attempt to regain the lead in a Pacific Division matchup.

Exclusive ESPN+/Hulu game action returns on Thursday when the Boston Bruins visit the New York Rangers — with David Pastrnak and Mika Zibanejad also getting the Star Watch treatment on ESPN+ — followed by the Florida Panthers, who cross country to the Make way to face off against the San Jose Sharks. The Buffalo Sabers take on the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday to wrap up ESPN+/Hulu-exclusive Games of the Week. The action continues Sunday on ESPN when the Toronto Maple Leafs and last season’s Hart Memorial Trophy winner Auston Matthews take on Martin Necas and the Carolina Hurricanes at the PNC Arena.
