Capitals-Wild set for NHL Network-US on Thursday
Alex Ovechkin has accomplished a lot of things in his young NHL career. Winning a game in Minnesota isn't one of them.

Hockey fans in the United States can watch Ovi and the Caps try again Thursday night when they visit the Wild for an 8 p.m. ET start that will be televised in HD on the NHL Network.

The Caps have lost both visits to the Xcel Energy Center since Ovechkin's arrival in 2005 -- and are 0-4-1 in St. Paul since the Wild entered the NHL in 2000.

Fans in Canada can tune in to TSN at 9:30 p.m. ET to see the game between the Colorado Avalanche and Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome. That game will also be in high-definition. The Avs will be without No. 1 goaltender Craig Anderson, who was injured in pregame warmups prior to Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss at Vancouver.
Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
