The two early leaders in their respective conferences will face off in Pittsburgh in one of seven games on Friday night's NHL schedule.

The surprising Dallas Stars, who lead the NHL with 11 victories, visit the Consol Energy Center for the first time in the third game of a four-game trip. The Stars have had a couple of days off after Tuesday's 5-2 win in Washington, while the Penguins (9-3-3) have had a break in the schedule since finishing a two-game California trip with a 3-2 win in Los Angeles on Saturday.

U.S. viewers can see the game, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Two other games also begin at 7. Washington visits New Jersey in the front end of a home-and-home series, while Carolina tries to bounce back from Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Devils when it visits the Rangers, who are back home after Wednesday's 3-2 win in Ottawa.

A half-hour later, the Senators visit Buffalo and Edmonton is at Detroit.

At 8:30 p.m. ET, the Chicago Blackhawks are back home to host Calgary, which has been off since Tuesday's 3-0 home loss to Minnesota. The last game of the night begins at 10 p.m. ET when Vancouver moves down the coast from Los Angeles for a visit to Anaheim. The struggling Ducks have lost their last six, including Wednesday's 4-2 home loss to Nashville.
Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
