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

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
