Habs go for home-and-home sweep
Two nights after beating the New York Islanders 5-3 at the Bell Centre, the Montreal Canadiens would like nothing better that to complete a home-and-home sweep. They'll get the chance on Friday night when the teams reconvene at the Nassau Coliseum for the back end of the home-and-home series -- one of six games on the NHL schedule.

The game starts at 7 p.m. ET and can be seen on RDS and regionally on TSN.

Two other games also start at 7. Pittsburgh comes home after a road trip that ended with a 5-3 loss at Tampa Bay on Wednesday to host Philadelphia in a game that can be seen on the NHL Network in the United States. The Flyers have had two nights off since a 6-3 home victory against Buffalo.

Carolina visits the New York Rangers in a game matching teams that lost at home on Wednesday -- the Hurricanes dropped a 3-0 decision to Washington, while the Rangers fell 6-4 to Atlanta.

The Thrashers will try to build on that win when they host the Sabres in a game that starts at 7:30 p.m. ET. An hour later, the Chicago Blackhawks host the Edmonton Oilers. Chicago comes off a 3-1 home win against Los Angeles on Wednesday; the Oilers lost 3-2 in a shootout at Columbus on Thursday.

The late game, starting at 10 p.m. ET,  matches the New Jersey Devils and Anaheim. Anaheim comes home after splitting a four-game trip that ended with a 5-2 win at Dallas, while the Devils lost 5-2 at San Jose on Wednesday and have dropped three in a row.
Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.

— Jordan Eberle on taking his game and the Edmonton Oilers to the next level
