A KHL matchup available on ESPN2 features two NHL captains: Alex Ovechkin, playing with Dynamo Moscow, and Zdeno Chara, playing with HC Lev Praha. Two other games feature a combined eight NHL players as well.

A trio of KHL games Tuesday are highlighted by a matchup between two teams featuring NHL stars playing with their lockout teams, as Alex Ovechkin's Dynamo Moscow squad faces off against Zdeno Chara and Lev Praha.

The captains of the Washington Capitals and Boston Bruins play again after an Eastern Conference quarterfinals matchup that went seven games and featured four overtime affairs, one of which went to double OT. Each player picked relatively strong KHL teams to play for: Ovechkin's Moscow team is second in the KHL Western Conference, while Chara's Prague-based team is fourth. Joining Chara on Lev Praha are the injured Jakub Voracek of the Philadelphia Flyers and Jiri Hudler of the Calgary Flames. The game is one of several that will be broadcast on American television as part of a deal with the KHL, as it will be shown live on ESPN2 at 1 p.m. Eastern.

Both other games on the docket also feature NHL talent on both sides, as Ruslan Fedotenko and HC Donbass take on Severstal, while Evander Kane and Niklas Backstrom's Dynamo Minsk team faces off against Dynamo Riga.

Here's today's full schedule and the NHL players involved.
