Super Saturday has all the action you can handle

Wednesday, 10.22.2008 / 5:40 PM / Super Saturday

By Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor


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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
