Even though everyone at the office water cooler will be talking hoops, it's a great week for hockey.
With playoff battles heating up and the standings beginning to separate the contenders and pretenders, most of the games this week have big-time implications.
Among such a packed slate, here are a few that stand out as must-watch games.
These are the games for which you'll want to make sure that you have the TV reserved. Otherwise, you run the risk of your wife hogging it to watch the weekly four-hour, two-day special of American Idol.
In fact, if ever there was a time to buy another television, this week is it. Think of the arguments you'll avoid in the future!
There is such a great schedule lined up, that games including a matchup between Crosby vs. Brodeur, historic division battles and a rematch between two of the league's top three scorers, didn't even crack the top five.
There is no guarantee that these games will live up to the hype. But with playoffs on the line and more than one game serving as a chance for some serious pay-back; we could be in for the year's best week of hockey.
Let's get it started.
