Devils-Caps on NHL Net-US highlights Saturday's action
Having won the front end of their home-and-home series against New Jersey, the Washington Capitals will go for the sweep in one of 11 games on Saturday's NHL schedule.
Having won the front end of their home-and-home series against New Jersey, the Washington Capitals will go for the sweep in one of 11 games on Saturday's NHL schedule.

The Caps topped New Jersey 3-1 on Friday to snap a two-game losing streak and will be back at the Verizon Center for the first time since Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Dallas -- a showing that led coach Bruce Boudreau to hold a grueling 90-minute practice the next day.

The NHL Network will air the game to fans in the United States, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Six more games also get under way at 7, including a meeting between the Senators and Maple Leafs in Toronto that will be seen in most of Canada on CBC. Ottawa lost 5-1 at Buffalo on Friday, while the Leafs are back home after a 3-2 shootout win at St. Louis on Thursday.

Buffalo moves on to Boston, where the Bruins will be trying for their fifth consecutive win. Pittsburgh, a 3-1 winner against Dallas at home on Friday, moves on to Carolina; the Hurricanes are back home after a 5-1 loss in New York. Dallas wraps up a four-game trip in Detroit, where the Wings blanked Edmonton 3-0 on Friday.

Nashville, a 4-2 winner at Anaheim on Wednesday, is back home for a rare visit from Montreal and two struggling teams meet when Winnipeg visits Columbus. Both of those games can be seen in parts of Canada on CBC.

At 8 p.m. ET, Tampa Bay visits St. Louis. The Lightning have been off for two days since beating Philadelphia 2-1 in overtime.

The second half of CBC's Hockey Night in Canada doubleheader sends Calgary to Colorado for a 10 p.m. ET start. The Avs are coming off a 4-3 overtime win against the Islanders on Saturday.

The last two games both start at 10:30 p.m. ET. Minnesota, a 3-1 loser at San Jose on Thursday, heads down the coast for a game in Los Angeles, where the Kings will try to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to the Canucks the same night. The Sharks, 8-1-1 in their last 10, will try to beat Phoenix for the seventh time in a row at HP Pavilion. The Coyotes are starting a six-game trip after losing 3-2 in overtime to Montreal on Thursday.
Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
