NHL Live previews Rivalry Night, Alfredsson's return

It is Wednesday Night Rivalry on NBCSN as the Boston Bruins and Buffalo Sabres square off and NHL Live, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, will preview this Atlantic Division matchup. We'll go to the Arena and talk to NBCSN analyst Pierre McGuire, who will be "Inside The Glass" for the game.

The big story tonight is Daniel Alfredsson of the Detroit Red Wings facing his former team for the first time as Detroit takes on the Ottawa Senators at Joe Louis Arena. Alfredsson spent 17 seasons with the Senators and is off to a good start with his new team (nine points in 10 games). While it may not have the fanfare that's expected for his Dec. 1 return to Canada's capital, it should be a great game between two teams that advanced to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs last year. It also features two of the best American-born goaltenders as Craig Anderson faces Jimmy Howard, who is 3-0-0 in his career against Ottawa.

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.
