Cisco NHL Live with Bill Pidto and EJ Hradek, at 5 p.m. ET on the NHL Network, will get you ready for your hockey weekend. On Friday's show we have NBC Sports analyst Eddie Olczyk along with our own Barry Melrose to give their expert opinions on teams with hot and cold starts. Buffalo Sabres forward Thomas Vanek, whose 15 points lead the League in scoring, will also join us.
Tomorrow we celebrate Groundhogs Day. While we wait to see if Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow, EJ will take a look at players around the League who need to come out of hibernation. Plus, Super Bowl weekend is upon us! Players may love their ice time but they're football fans, too. Find our who is rooting for which teams.
EJ is back from the Gretzky Fantasy Camp and so is his signature segment, the EJ5. Don't forget to submit your #AskEJ questions through Twitter via @NHLNetwork or @EJHradek_NHL, and stick around for the shootout as EJ picks each game being played on Friday.
