Zdeno Chara, Alex Ovechkin square off on ESPN2

ESPN, the network where the NHL has been an afterthought, will kick off its KHL coverage on Tuesday. At 1 p.m. on ESPN2, Zdeno Chara’s Lev Praha club will play Alex Ovechkin and Dynamo Moscow. The game will re-air on ESPN2 at 8 p.m.

Chara has appeared in one game for his KHL team. Ovechkin has scored one goal and has one assist in two games.

Steve Levy and ex-Lightning coach Barry Melrose will call the game.

Had the NHL not been locked out, Chara would be preparing for Thursday’s season-opening game against Philadelphia.
