Super Saturday has all the action you can handle

Saturday could be the most wonderful day of the year for hockey fans. Call it NHL Super Saturday

Stock the fridge. Keep the beverages handy. And find a soft chair. You're not going to want to miss a minute of the action. And there will be lots and lots of action.

All 30 teams will be playing on Super Saturday, from Sidney Crosby hitting Broadway to Ilya Kovalchuk in the Hub of Hockey. The Battle of Ontario will rage in Toronto, while an old Norris Division rivalry will play out when the Red Wings visit the Blackhawks. Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals will take aim on Marty Turco and the Stars, and new Shark Dan Boyle returns to his old home in Tampa Bay.

That's just a sample of what's in store. So tune in, turn on, and get comfortable. It's going to be a wild, wonderful ride.


Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
