NHL Live talks to Dubinsky, USA Hockey's Ogrean

Thursday is a busy night in the NHL as 11 games are on the schedule and NHL Live, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, will get you ready for all of them. The New York Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets square off on NHL Network, at 7 p.m. ET, and we'll talk to Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky, who will be facing his former team for the first time. We'll also give you a live look at warm-ups in the early games in our Ice Pass.

In the Western Conference, the San Jose Sharks are looking for a 10th straight win against the Vancouver Canucks. Vancouver is playing Game 2 of a four-game road trip which features the always difficult trip through California to also face the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks. Meanwhile, no one seems to be talking about how great the Minnesota Wild have been lately with six wins in their last seven games. On Thursday, they'll face a Washington Capitals team that has scored 16 goals in the last three games and has the best power play in the League.

Executive Director of USA Hockey Dave Ogrean will also be on our set to review Try Hockey for Free Day and preview a great year in USA Hockey with the World Junior Championship and 2014 Sochi Olympics on the horizon.

Remember to submit your #AskEJ questions through Twitter via @NHLNetwork or @EJHradek_NHL, and join the conversation on Twitter as we ask you to pick the game of the night.

Edwards' three stars from World Junior A Challenge

The United States and Canada West each earned byes into the semifinal round of the 2013 World Junior A Challenge after winning their preliminary-round games this week at Mariners Centre in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

The semifinals will be held Friday with the championship game slated for Sunday at 11 a.m. ET. The United States, winner of four of the past five tournaments, is the defending gold medalist.

The U.S. had won three consecutive tournament titles from 2008 to 2010 before Canada West ended the run in 2011. The Americans regained their crown last year.

NHL Central Scouting's Chris Edwards, who has been in Yarmouth this week to view the prospects for the 2014 NHL Draft, checked in with his three stars from Wednesday. For more of Edwards' insight into those top players competing at the tournament, read this week's "Prospector Files."

Fantasy Spin: Lehner valuable in deep, keeper leagues

It hasn't been easy for Ottawa Senators goaltenders through 15 games this season.

Craig Anderson (4-4-2) and Robin Lehner (1-2-2) are the only goalie teammates in the NHL to each face 40-plus shots on goal on three separate occasions in 2013-14. Ottawa has won once in those six games and is allowing a League-worst 38.1 per game.

To top things off, Craig Anderson injured his neck in a collision Sunday against the Dallas Stars and is day-to-day.

Thus, the burden on backup goalie Robin Lehner seemed even heavier entering Tuesday's road game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Luckily for the Senators and fantasy owners, the 22-year-old answered the call by stopping 32 of 33 shots for his first win of the season.

Quote of the Day

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.

— Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville on Brandon Saad, who was traded by Chicago to the Columbus Blue Jackets this offseason
