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

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
