Five games on NHL schedule for Thursday
Having snapped their losing streak on Tuesday, the Toronto Maple Leafs will try for back-to-back victories when they host the New Jersey Devils in one of five games on Thursday's NHL schedule.

The Leafs rallied from a 4-1 deficit to beat Nashville 4-1, ending an eight-game losing streak. The Devils are coming off a 3-0 loss at Boston on Monday as they try to get back into the playoff race after a slow start.

The Devils-Leafs game is one of three that starts at 7 p.m. ET. The Boston Bruins host Florida in a battle of teams that posted victories on the road Wednesday -- the Bruins won 3-2 at New York, the Panthers edged the Thrashers 2-1 in Atlanta. The Tampa Bay Lightning, a 4-2 winner Wednesday night on Long Island, travel to Philadelphia to face the Flyers, who had a day off following a 3-0 loss at Montreal on Tuesday.

A half-hour later, Nashville visits Montreal.

The final game of the night begins at 9 p.m. ET when San Jose, a 4-3 overtime loser at Colorado on Wednesday, visits Dallas. The Stars are coming off a 2-1 home win against Anaheim on Tuesday.
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
