The Detroit Red Wings are one of the two remaining unbeaten teams in the NHL, and they're aiming to stay that way.

The Wings take a 4-0-0 record into their home game against the winless Columbus Blue Jackets, one of four games on the NHL's schedule Friday night. Detroit has been off since Saturday's 3-2 overtime win at Minnesota, while the Jackets fell to 0-5-1 when they lost 3-2 at home to Dallas on Tuesday.

The NHL Network will televise the game in Canada, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Also at 7, the San Jose Sharks begin a road trip when they visit New Jersey. San Jose hasn't played since a 3-2 home loss to Anaheim on Monday, while the Devils have been off since winning 3-2 in a shootout at Nashville on Saturday.

An hour later, St. Louis plays its only home game in a nine-game stretch when it hosts Carolina. The Blues are back at the Scottrade Center after Tuesday's 5-0 loss at Los Angeles, while the 'Canes come to town following a 4-1 win at Boston the same night.

In the final game of the evening, Dallas continues its road trip with a visit to Anaheim. Canadian viewers can also see that game on the NHL Network, beginning at 10 p.m. ET.
Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
