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

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
