Two games, both in Canada, set for Thanksgiving Day

While the United States spends Thursday celebrating Thanksgiving, the NHL schedule lists a pair of games, both in Canada (where the holiday was celebrated last month).

At 7:30 p.m. ET, the Columbus Blue Jackets wrap up a five-game road trip with a visit to Ottawa. Columbus won the opener of the trip but has last the last three, including a 5-3 defeat at Montreal on Tuesday in which the Jackets wasted a pair of leads. Ottawa is coming off a 3-1 loss at New Jersey on Wednesday.

The Los Angeles Kings, who won 3-1 at Edmonton on Wednesday, complete a brief two-game trip to Western Canada when they visit the Vancouver Canucks (10 p.m. ET). The Canucks have had three days off since their last game -- a 1-0 home loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night.
