    ESPN NHL Hockey is more than just the game of hockey. It's true grit, true skills, true intensity, and your ability to bring those elements to each and every match-up you face. It's taking on anyone, anytime, anywhere. It's feeling the impact of a precision hit and splitting the D with a skilled skater. It's the battle for the puck and the glory of burying it in the back of the net. It's achieving milestones and setting the standard for others to follow. It's everything you’d want in a hockey game ... and nothing you’d expect. ESPN NHL Hockey - true to the NHL.
