The National Hockey League is ready to drop the puck on a full 82-game season with fans back in every arena and a wide-open race for the Stanley Cup. The best shot belongs to Colorado, the preseason Cup favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook and anyone who has watched Nathan MacKinnon try to will his team to a championship as one of the best players in the world.

(AP) -The NHL is set to resume Tuesday with three games on the schedule after an extended holiday break.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning won’t have either of their NHL goaltenders or their coach for a final rematch against the Montreal Canadiens.

Coach Peter DeBoer is out for the Vegas Golden Knights’ game at Los Angeles.

The league postponed three more games slated for later this week to bring the total to 70 this season.

Chicago’s game at Winnipeg and a home-and-home series between Dallas and Colorado are the latest on the list to be rescheduled.
