Sharks-Wings highlights Friday's NHL schedule
The San Jose Sharks have won the first three games of their six-game road trip. Getting win No. 4 won't be easy.
The San Jose Sharks have won the first three games of their six-game road trip. Getting win No. 4 won't be easy.

The Sharks, who've already won in New Jersey, Boston and Nashville, come to Detroit's Joe Louis Arena for a rematch of their second-round playoff series last spring -- one of four games on Friday's NHL schedule. The NHL Network will televise the game to fans in the United States, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET. The Wings are 5-2-0 but have lost their last two games, at Washington and Columbus.

Friday's action begins at 7 p.m. ET when the Chicago Blackhawks visit Carolina. Both teams are coming off shootouts on Tuesday -- the Hawks beat Anaheim 3-2, while the 'Canes dropped a 3-2 decision to Ottawa.

The other two games begin at 9 p.m. ET. The Edmonton Oilers visit Colorado, which is back home after a 4-2 loss at Calgary on Wednesday. The Flames will try to build on that victory when they host the St. Louis Blues, who won 3-0 at Vancouver on Wednesday.
Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
