There are a dozen games on Saturday's schedule, and the NHL Network will have two of the biggest ones for U.S. viewers.
The action starts at 3:30 p.m. ET with the first half of the network's doubleheader, a visit by the Montreal Canadiens to Los Angeles. The Canadiens are trying to avoid an 0-for-California trip after a 4-3 shootout loss in San Jose on Thursday; the Kings edged Florida 2-1 on the same night.
Canadian viewers can tune in to see the game on CBC and RDS.
The action then perks up with five games starting at 7 p.m. ET -- including the second half of the NHL Network doubleheader, a matchup between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins at TD Garden. It's the second half of a home-and-home series; the Bruins won the front end 6-3 in Toronto on Wednesday. As with the Canadiens-Kings game, Canadian viewers can tune in on CBC.
CBC will also air two other games regionally -- Ottawa at Washington, where the Caps are looking for their first win under new coach Dale Hunter, and New Jersey at Winnipeg. Also at 7, Pittsburgh visits Carolina, which is 0-2 under its new coach, Kirk Muller, and the New York Rangers, 5-3 winners at Carolina on Thursday, are at Tampa Bay.
Three more games get under way at 8 p.m. ET. Chicago visits St. Louis, Buffalo is at Nashville and Philadelphia pays a rare visit to Phoenix. At 8:30, the New York Islanders are in Dallas.
CBC completes its "Hockey Night in Canada" tripleheader at 10 p.m. ET when it airs the Flames-Oilers game from Edmonton. In the final game of the night, Florida is at San Jose for a 10:30 p.m. ET start.
