Cisco NHL Live with Deb Placey and EJ Hradek (5 p.m. ET, NHLN-US) will get you ready for your hockey weekend.
There is only one game on the schedule Friday, with the Anaheim Ducks visiting the Dallas Stars (8:30 p.m. ET, NHLN-US). We'll get a live update from our Cisco NHL Arena Cam in Dallas, as well as speak with NBC Sports' Eddie Olczyk and the NHL Network's Barry Melrose.
In addition rock legend Rob Zombie, currently working on a movie about the Broad Street Bullies of the 1970s, will be on today's show to talk about meeting some of the former Bullies this week at a Flyers game and what to expect in the movie.
Staying in Pennsylvania, we'll also talk to Penguins forward James Neal about the team's current five-game winning streak, and Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward will discuss his consecutive 40-plus save performances.
Don’t forget to submit your #AskEJ through Twitter via @NHLNetwork or @EJHradek_NHL, keep an eye on a certain senior reporter’s dance moves in his EJ5: Hradek’s Top 5 players that have stepped up their game, and stick around for the shootout as EJ picks a winner for tonight's Ducks-Stars game.
