The Washington Capitals have lost four games this season -- and two have come at the hands of the Boston Bruins, who swept a home-and-home series with the Caps last month. They'll try to avenge those losses on Friday night when the Bruins come to the Verizon Center, and the NHL Network will be on hand.
Fans in the United States can tune in for the 7 p.m. ET start to see if Bruins' goaltender Tim Thomas can continue his brilliant start -- he's 7-0-0 and has allowed just five goals in the seven games.
Two of Boston's Northeast Division rivals can be seen in Canada. Both RDS and TSN will show the game between the Montreal Canadiens and Buffalo Sabres at HSBC Arena, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET.
We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
