At the Rink: Coyotes at Bruins

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins proved they could win without goaltender Tuukka Rask on Friday.

Now they'll try to build on their 3-2 victory against the New Jersey Devils, with or without their star goaltender.

Rask, who had played 18 straight games, was ill and did not dress against the Devils. Goaltender Niklas Svedberg started Friday for the first time since Feb. 10 and made 29 saves in the overtime victory. The Bruins, who have now won two out of three after going winless for six (0-4-2), did not hold a morning skate Saturday in advance of their 5:30 p.m. game against the Arizona Coyotes. Coach Claude Julien will speak about an hour prior to the game.

Flames will be as aggressive as they can: report

The Calgary Flames plan to be "as aggressive as we can" heading into the NHL Trade Deadline at 3 p.m. ET on March 2, general manager Brad Treliving told Sportsnet 690 Radio on Friday.

"I wouldn’t say I'm close. Things can change. We’re talking. There’s lots of conversations going on," Treliving said, according to Nichols on Hockey. "Are we imminent? We hope; we expect and anticipate to get some business done. But again, I don't know. You need somebody to say yes on the other line too.

"So we're going to be as aggressive as we can. We'll see where that gets us."

At the Rink: Kings at Ducks

ANAHEIM -- Los Angeles Kings defenseman Andrej Sekera has little time to get to know his new teammates before being thrown into a big rivalry game, but he's ready for the challenge.

Sekera will make his Kings debut Friday against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center. The teams have developed a healthy disdain for each other since the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and it's usually a mixed fan base in Anaheim's building.

"I heard about it and I'm looking forward to it, it should be exciting," Sekera said.

Pressed more about what he's heard, Sekera said, "It's a rivalry game, with a full house."

At the Rink: Avalanche at Stars

DALLAS -- The Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars each have 63 points and are eight points behind the Minnesota Wild for the second Western Conference wild-card berth into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, making their game at American Airlines Center on Friday a crucial one for both teams.

Dallas (27-25-9) has lost four straight games (0-3-1) and is 12-12-7 at home. But coach Lindy Ruff feels that even though Dallas is 0-3-1 against the Avalanche this season, the margin between them is small.

"In the last game in this building, basically they have nothing and we let them score with under 20 seconds left and they end up winning it in the extra time," Ruff said. "It's making sure that if we have that lead we can hold it, and if we're behind it's getting that key goal."

At the Rink: Blackhawks at Lightning

TAMPA -- The Tampa Bay Lightning avoided an injury scare Friday when defenseman Victor Hedman took the ice with the rest of his teammates for the morning skate.

With the Lightning already thin on the blue line they will need major contributions from Hedman and the rest of the defense when they play the Chicago Blackhawks at Amalie Arena on Friday.

The Lightning (37-19-6) have had four days rest after going 3-2-0 on a West Coast trip that ended with a 5-4 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday. The Blackhawks are playing their third game in four days and the second half of a back-to-back after a 3-0 win against the Florida Panthers on Thursday.

"It's good to give the body a couple of days to rest because we've got a pretty full schedule coming up," Lightning forward Tyler Johnson said. "It's always good, especially this time of the year."

As for Hedman, his departure from practice Thursday was just a precautionary measure.

"Everything feels right and we've got a big matchup tonight so I have to be out there," Hedman said. "This is the time when we have to try to separate ourselves and up our game. That's what the teams like Chicago and Boston do this time of year."

At the Rink: Capitals at Hurricanes

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Washington Capitals will try to stop a two-game losing streak when they visit the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday.

With a 15-8-3 mark since the start of 2015, Washington has done its part to stay in position for a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs in the tightly-bunched Metropolitan Division, but that's all the more reason to halt the current skid.

"We're in position still, but losing two in a row is something we've got to squash right now," defenseman Matt Niskanen said. "Tonight's a big game for us, jockeying for playoff position. That's important, but what's even more important is how we play on a consistent basis."

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
