The New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia Flyers kick off the day's action at 1 p.m. ET when they meet at the Wells Fargo Center. The Devils improved to 4-0-1 in their last five by beating Pittsburgh 2-0 on Thursday, the same night the Flyers polished off Ottawa 6-2 to stay on top of the overall NHL standings.

An hour later, old-time rivals Detroit and Chicago face off at the United Center. The Wings come to Chicago after a 4-3 overtime win at St. Louis on Wednesday, while the Hawks have had five days off since beating Nashville 6-3 on Sunday.

At 3 p.m. ET, Boston pays a rare visit to Colorado, where the Avs are trying to regroup after a 5-1 home loss to Nashville on Thursday. The B's come to Denver after a 4-2 loss to Buffalo the same night.

The action resumes with four games at 7 p.m. ET.

In Toronto, the Maple Leafs try to build on Thursday's 5-2 win against Anaheim when they host Washington. The Caps' offense is still struggling, but they are 2-0-1 in their last three after Thursday's 2-1 victory against the Islanders. The game can be seen on the NHL Network in the United States and as part of CBC's Hockey Night in Canada.

Anaheim moves on to Montreal, where former Habs' captain Saku Koivu comes to the Bell Centre in a visiting uniform for the first time. That game can be seen on CBC and RDS.

The New York Rangers try to bounce back from Thursday's 4-1 loss at Carolina when they visit Atlanta, where the Thrashers lost 3-2 to Tampa Bay in a shootout on Thursday. The Hurricanes try to continue their drive toward the top eight in the East when they visit Pittsburgh.

Two more games get under way at 8 p.m. ET. Los Angeles visits Phoenix in the back end of a home-and-home series; the Coyotes won 2-0 at L.A. on Thursday. Also, Columbus continues its road trip with a visit to St. Louis. The Jackets come to town after a 3-2 overtime win in Florida on Wednesday.

Vancouver tries to get back on the right track when it hosts Calgary in a 10 p.m. ET start that is the second game of Hockey Night in Canada's doubleheader. The Canucks are still the best in the West, but they're just 1-2-2 in their last five after Thursday's 2-1 shootout loss to San Jose.

The Sharks are back home for a 10:30 p.m. ET game against Minnesota, which has had two days to enjoy Wednesday's 6-0 victory at Calgary.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
