All 32 NHL teams are in action Tuesday. Times, TV, streaming, best games

All 32 NHL teams will be in action on Tuesday night.

It has happened before – last season on April 8 – but Tuesday night will be an ESPN extravaganza designed to make it easier to take in as much action as possible.

The first game of NHL Frozen Frenzy starts at 6 p.m. ET and the final one at 11 p.m. ET. Starting at 6:30, 12 game starts are staggered every 15 minutes. The start of the final three games are spaced further apart.

Want to watch only your local team? All games are being streamed on ESPN+.

Want to watch live analysis and cut-ins from all of the action? There is a whip-around show on TV and streaming.

Here is how to watch the first NHL Frozen Frenzy:
