ESPN will host Tuesday’s matchup between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Washington Capitals with puck drop set for a couple minutes at 7 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. This is the first game of a Hockey Night doubleheader on ESPN.

The Philadelphia Flyers are out of the playoff race and just looking to close the season strong and get a look at some young players. One of those young guys, winger Bobby Brink, will make his NHL debut tonight, three days after helping the Denver Pioneers win its ninth NCAA college hockey championship.

The Washington Capitals are looking to round out their game before the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They come into tonight’s contest on a three-game win streak and are led by ageless goal-scoring machine Alexander Ovechkin, who is five goals shy of his ninth 50-goal season.
